A local farmer has praised highways workers after they completed major repairs to a Fenland road that had to close because of potholes.

Sam Bliss complained back in January that a road closure on Folleys Drove, Guyhirn, which had been imposed without warning, had made it difficult for him to access his land.

He described the potholes as being the size of craters and criticised the fact the road had been closed with no indication of when it might reopen.

The issue had been discussed multiple times by Wisbech St Mary Parish Council, which covers Guyhirn in the past few years, including at its January meeting with various suggestions being made about how to deal with the state of the road.

But now Cambridgeshire County Council's highways team have carried out the repairs and Sam says the road is probably one of the best in Fenland.

He said: "They have done an absolutely brilliant job of the repairs.
