Labour has promised to make an immediate cash injection of £1m to fix Derbyshire’s roads if the party wins the county council elections.

Cllr Anne Western, leader of the Labour group at Derbyshire County Council (DCC), made the pledge after the Conservative-led authority cut £1.9m from its road maintenance budget for the coming year.

She said the cash injection – which would go towards emergency road repairs this summer – will be funded using £1m set aside by Conservative councillors for community grants.
