RESIDENTS say they discovered a shocking message spray painted on their road – but while it might be very rude, they love it.
The messages daubed in massive white letters outside a row of residential homes on Ermine Street includes ‘Fix Me. I’m f***ed’ and ‘Road tax?’
Each pothole on the road was also individually circled by the mystery resident before being discovered on New Year’s Day.
Shannon Blankley, who lives in the village, said: “Waking up and seeing this made my day. Whoever done it big round of applause for you.
“About time someone did something. We should all stand together on this. It’s getting past the joke and just cost us money.

“You can’t even avoid the potholes anymore… we need 100 plus cones put one in each pothole soon get council talking then.”
Others have been complaining for months about the potholed street causing damage to car wheels and disturbing their sleep due to heavy lorries shaking their properties.
One villager, who did not want to be named, added: “Until highways strengthen the entire road or put a weight limit on it, the trucks will destroy any repairs.
“It’s only a B road and has far too much heavy traffic on it.”

Another local took to social media to comment: “Very rarely use this route but I passed through on Friday.
“The road is dangerous and it’s disgusting that it has been left to get in such a state.”
One woman added: “Brilliant. I drive this way to and from work, the road is one massive run of potholes that you can no longer avoid, I’ve already had to have a crack in a wheel repaired and another wheel replaced. Let’s hope they get fixed very soon.”
But another put: “Graffiti, pure and simple. Disgusting as kids could read. Much better way to get your message across than this.”
