image for Isle of Wight News - Pothole Assault Continues
Early Lossses Were Heavy

Since reaching landfall in Bembridge in early winter municipal crews on the east side of the island have put up a courageous battle armed with shovels, hand packers and service vehicles but have proved no match for what has proved to be a relentless pothole onslaught.

Potholes are now firmly in control of the area from Shanklin to Ryde.

While early losses were heavy casualties continue. Last week several lorries were reported lost due to potholes in Sandown and an elderly lady in Nettlestone turned her ankle but is in good condition at home and has not been hospitalized. An extremely deep pothole has been discovered in Bembridge where the potholes were first sighted which has caused some to believe that the potholes will grow in size as well as number over time making the situation even worse.

Based on current intelligence potholes are predicted to be planning a pincer maneuver from Ryde and Sandown driving in concert west towards Newport which due to its' role as political capital of the island will more or less signal defeat for the island to the potholes should it fall.

Residents held in territory controlled by potholes have been advised to remain calm, stay indoors and not venture outside to operate motor vehicles unless absolutely necessary until municipal crews regain control of the island.
