Residents of an Appledore street are calling on Devon County Council to sort out the potholes.

Torridge District Councillor Kenny Davis said he was disappointed in the state of Irsha Street, with potholes and gulleys along the whole road.

This is a concern echoed by many of the residents, including Janet Whitaker, who said her husband struggled to push his wheelchair along the street.

“I have to walk in front of him to tell him where the potholes are,” she said.

“Once he did fall out of his wheelchair; it’s getting worse and it’s both ends of Irsha Street now.”

Councillor Davis said he had been in touch with Devon County Council about the state of the road.

He said: “It would be wrong of me or anyone else to put the blame on Devon County council or their councillors for the state of our roads.

“I’m sure if they had the resources at their disposal Irsha Street, along with many others in and around the greater Northam area, would have been re-surfaced long ago and a lesser danger to public health.”
