A WARNING has gone out to householders in the Yate, Sodbury and Thornbury area after a defective resurfacing mixture was used to fix potholes.

Several streets in South Gloucestershire have been left with more potholes after incorrect mixtures were used to fix surfaces.

Now, South Gloucestershire Council has issued a warning householders.

A spokesperson said: "We advise residents to take care not to walk any of the affected material into their homes."

What is the problem?

SGC is aware there are problems with the quality of surfaces at 21 sites.

Micro Asphalt surfacing mix used by contractors was defective and is it working with them to find out the cause and take action.

The spokesperson added: "Many of the sites completed have some visual defects and the new surface is starting to strip off and in some cases form holes.

"The council wasn't involved with sourcing this material."

"We don't have any safety concerns around the condition of the affected road surfaces, but we will continue to closely monitor them while we agree on a suitable resolution with the contractor that carried out the work.
