It’s not the most subtle of protests, but one pot-hole campaigner armed with a can of spray paint is getting results.
The mystery crusader - a professional artist and surveyor - is highlighting craters in the Tarmac by drawing a (ahem) huge male appendage around them.
With a nod to world famous street artist Banksy, the pothole superhero has styled himself ‘*anksy’.

“They damage vehicles. Sometimes it’s hard to know which pothole caused the damage because there are so many. When I’ve finished in Ramsbottom, I’ll move on to the rest of Manchester.”
