In Crawley v Barnsley MBC (2017) EWCA Civ 36 the majority of the Court of Appeal upheld that a local authority’s system, whereby reports of potentially serious defects in minor roads reported by members of the public on a Friday afternoon or over the weekend would not be dealt with until the following Monday, was inadequate.  Although reduced staffing levels over a weekend was reasonable, there had to be some means of responding quickly to complaints from members of the public of serious and dangerous defects in the road.
