A council cock-up led to a Brighton road being dug up and resurfaced just days after it was repainted.

The reason – a simple case of poor communication.

A council spokesperson said: “We’d like to apologise to residents for re-painting some road markings on Heath Hill Avenue and then resurfacing over a small stretch of them.

“This was due to a lack of communication between our highways teams.

“We will be reviewing our internal systems to try and make sure this doesn’t happen again.”
