A pothole has become so large and deep that ducks have taken to swimming in it. Clare Skelton, who spotted a mallard paddling around the pothole in Horsham, West Sussex, said: "It's almost deep enough for the dog to swim in."
Ms Skelton said of the ducks: "I think they're flying in, looking for somewhere to nest, and they thought that looked as good a pond as any".
She added: "So many of us are having damage to our cars.
"Even the locals get caught - the people who know where the potholes are under the water.
You see this water flooding down the road and you don't know which bit is a really deep, dangerous pothole and some of them are 12 inches deep."
In a statement, West Sussex County Council said: "This pothole will be filled in before the end of the month. On average we fill in 70 potholes every single working day of the year."
