Locals in Teesside have hailed the ‘power of the willy’ after two potholes were fixed after the rather rude images were spray-painted around them.

A set of Penises had been used to spray-paint the ground around the potholes to highlight the pending problem.

Once the pictures landed on Teesside Connected  Middlesbrough council was quickly out to cover up the mess.

Locals had been complaining that the potholes had gone unfixed for over a year, but within hours of the photo appearing on they were magically fixed.

In an update, the page later shared a photo from a resident called Brad Nicholson, who had written: “The power of the Willy. Repaired this morning 25-04-2019. Only been there a year, well done Middlesbrough Council.

Locals hailed “the power the willy” with one person wishing they had had that idea themselves

While another added, “There’s gonna be a penis on every pothole now.” and “Teesside is gonna be full of willies… Watch this space.”

Another joked  “Where there’s a willy, there’s a way.

A spokesman for Middlesbrough Council said: “Middlesbrough, like all local authority areas in the country, has issues with potholes and repairs are carried out on a priority basis determined by the risk they pose to highway users.

“Currently, however, we are carrying out pre-planned works in the Acklam area and staff were able to visit the nearby site on Fane Grove when the matter was reported to us and have patched over the hole.”
