His Tory colleagues who control Devon County Council are spending £167,000 of taxpayers’ money from a Government grant for road safety work on new conference facilities instead of dealing with potholes.

It’s said the scheme will save money on hiring outside rooms and bring in new business. But further enquiries have confirmed that the room hire ’savings’ are in fact mostly from within the county council.
