Man so fed up with potholes has started filling them with Pot Noodles to get them fixed
| Last updated
Potholes are one of those things in society that just suck.
There's no way around the topic. They are an unfortunate aspect of wear and tear and you certainly know the pain if you've driven over a big one at speed.
It can take some local councils ages to get them fixed because of a myriad of reasons, whether that be not enough money, time, care or something else.
However, one man has decided to go down a rather quirky route to get their attention.
Mark Morell, who is aptly dubbed dubbed Mr Pothole on social media, has started filling them with Pot Noodles in the hope they will be forced to act and fill in the gaping road issue.
Since #NothingFillsAHoleLikePotNoodle, who better to team up with to highlight the ridiculous state of the UK's roads than @potnoodle?

He's teamed up with the legendary instant noodle brand and has encouraged others to jump on the bandwagon.
"Since #NothingFillsAHoleLikePotNoodle, who better to team up with to highlight the ridiculous state of the UK's roads than @potnoodle," he wrote on Twitter.
"Send us pictures of your worst, local potholes using the hashtag and tagging your local council!"
According to the Metro, Morrell has come up with a bunch of ideas in the past to catch the eyes of council workers to rectify various potholes in his area of Brackley.
However, it seems like they have all fallen on deaf ears.
So, he's decided to up the ante with the help of Pot Noodles.
Morrell said (via the Metro): "Potholes drive road users potty and me more than most.
"The pothole crisis across the UK is an increasingly serious issue and something I have been campaigning on for more than 10 years.
"During this period I have had to use my noodle with stunts to highlight just how bad potholes are, from floating plastic ducks in water filled potholes, birthday cakes, fishing rods and model submarines."
He's not the only one who has been coming up with silly methods to get potholes fixed in their local area.
Some people have ever graffitied penises with spray paint, which has proven to be pretty effective as council workers are quick to remove the profanity from the street.
