Roads in Sussex are breaking up
Drivers and cyclists who have experienced the chaos of heavy snow and icy conditions are now facing a new problem - pot holes.
The weather is continuing to cause misery for motorists and cyclists as the extreme conditions have led to numerous holes appearing on roads in Brighton and Hove and across the rest of Sussex.
The county may have weathered the recent problems but cracks are now starting to appear and could end up costing millions of pounds to repair.
And with more cold temperatures predicted for later this week, motorists are being warned to take extra care on the roads.
Council workers have been out in force to check the condition of the roads and have been carrying out emergency repairs to keep traffic flowing smoothly.
Among the roads where pot holes have been found are Tivoli Place, Carden Avenue and Coldean Lane in Brighton, London Road, Hassocks, Marine Parade and Christchurch Road in Worthing and Kings Road, Lancing.
Roads campaigner Steve Percy, from the People's Parking Protest, said councils needed to act now to prevent more damage in the future.
Becky Reynolds, campaigns officer for the Brighton and Hove cycling campaign Bricycles, said the condition of roads were causing concerns among members.
Extreme weather created hundreds of pot holes across Sussex in February, leading to a repair bill of more than £2 million for East and West Sussex county councils.
Brighton and Hove City council, which is responsible for fewer miles of highway than the county councils, spent about £50,000 on repairs.
