Blackburn potholes to be repaired

A Lancashire town made famous by the Beatles for its potholes has been given nearly half a million pounds to repair them.The Department of Transport has allocated £465,000 to Blackburn and Darwen Council after the past two harsh winters took their toll on its roads.The cash is in addition to the money already in the budget for road repairs. John Lennon wrote the Beatles lyric from A Day in the Life about "4,000 holes in Blackburn, Lancashire" The track on the Sgt Pepper album was reportedly taken from a news article in a local paper that he had been reading.

I think someone should write a song about the holes on the road that I have to take to work. They never did fix it from the winter, just closed the outside lane.
