Britain's roads are on a 'knife edge' following a drastic rise in the number of pothole-related breakdowns, says the RAC.

The motoring organisation has revealed that in the first quarter of 2017 it was called out to more than 6,500 breakdowns where sub-standard road surfaces have been a factor – 63 per cent more than the same period last year.
