KIRKLEES has the best record for repairing pavements in Yorkshire.
The claim was made in a study by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, which investigated the condition of pavements in the region.
The study found that just 3% of footpaths in Kirklees needed repairing.
Calderdale was the second best area, with only 6% of its pavements in need of repair.
The worst area was East Yorkshire, where 50% of footpaths were in a poor state.
The study was carried out because physiotherapists are reporting an increasing number of patients who suffer injuries from falling on poorly-maintained pavements in wintry weather.
A spokesman for the society said: "Slips and trips on defective pavements can cause unnecessary pain and suffering and are much more likely in icy or wet weather.
"Local authorities need to prioritise the safety of pedestrians."
