New figures obtained by the Tories show the city is still paying out more than any other Scottish council, but the figure is down from £1 million the previous year.

It comes just a day after the Evening Times reported that Glasgow is winning the war on potholes.

Motorists in Scotland were reimbursed £584,745 in 2013, with the five-year total now standing at more than £2.7m.

Aberdeenshire paid out £34,000, and the figure in Edinburgh was £27,000.
