A UK man is cooking pot noodles in potholes

Mark Morell Pot Noodles

Mark Morell, of Brackley, Northamptonshire, has been tagged ‘Mr Pothole’, as he prepares edible pot noodles in potholes to raise national awareness about them as a growing problem.

He has previously tried cake and floating rubber duckies, but strangely none got attention like pot noodles.

“Potholes drive road users potty and me more than most. The pothole crisis across the UK is an increasingly serious issue and something I have been campaigning on for more than 10 years,” he added.

“During this period, I have had to use my noodle with stunts to highlight just how bad potholes are, from floating plastic ducks in water-filled potholes to birthday cakes, fishing rods, and model submarines,”

According to the 2022 Guardian Report “for Morrell, potholes aren’t just a nuisance but a menace. He’s met with the families of cyclists who have been killed after being flung into oncoming traffic by a pothole.

Each week, one cyclist dies or is left with life-changing injuries because of a pothole on Britain’s roads, according to a 2019 Freedom of Information request. Those deaths are avoidable.”
