North East of England sport journalist Keith Downie has vowed to take the train on his next visit to the Scottish Capital after his car was towed away as a result of damage to his car’s tyres.
The Scot tweeted: “Will take the train back to Edinburgh next time.
“The city’s potholes have single-handedly destroyed my tyres & wheels in the space of 24 hours @Edinburgh_CC”
The council received 146 claims last year for damage due to potholes. So far 53 have been successful, resulting in a pay-out of £10,140.54.
