Taxi driver Keith Hayward has to watch out for Grantham’s potholes every working day.

But even when he finishes his shift and returns to his home in Castlegate, he still can’t escape them!

Keith explained: “I’m a taxi driver in Grantham so I have plenty of experience with potholes.

“There’s one outside my house and it’s that big that when it’s filled up with water and any trucks go past I’ve got to go out and clean my windows and front door because the water splashes onto my house. I lie in bed and can hear the vehicles thumping over the potholes because basically they can’t avoid it.

“I first reported it to highways on January 8 but it’s got worse every day since.”
