A spokesman for the council said that the figures do not include money spent on road resurfacing which also repairs potholes and because of that, the total the council has spent on pothole damage has been approximately £7m.
He added: “As we’ve previously announced, we have approved £90m of extra funding to highways maintenance – this is on top of what is already budgeted for.
