THE PLIGHT of pothole-ridden Hertfordshire is to be raised in a Parliamentary debate tomorrow.

Anne Main, the MP for St Albans, has secured the debate and it will be a chance to challenge Government ministers over the poor state of roads in the county and the country as a whole.

Mrs Main said: "Britain's roads are in a dreadful state and St Albans is riddled with potholes. I am heartily sick of this matter being turned into a political point-scoring exercise.

"We have had systemic underfunding for Hertfordshire's roads and the severe weather has caused this problem to worsen. We need proper funding and our roads need urgent repair.
