Man finds so many potholes in road he turns it into crazy golf course

Ben has advertised the new leisure facility on Facebook

A pothole-ridden high street is so below par a teenager has decided to make a point - by setting up a crazy golf course. Ben Thornbury, 18, swung into action after reading about locals' fore-strations online. The student mocked up a sign and opened the course.

He says more than 20 residents turned up to have a go - and he hopes it will force the authorities to take action. Ben said: "I'm really proud it was my idea. People were playing crazy golf in middle of the high street while all the cars were coming past.

“Probably more than 20 people turned up - for a small town that’s very good. A family had just come into town for the day, they rocked up in the middle of the road and started playing golf with us.

“It’s just been such a rewarding feeling and people have been messaging me saying, ‘You’ve done it again for the community’. Ben enjoys spending his free time volunteering for projects in his local area, taking on tasks like cleaning the streets and trimming overgrown hedges.
