Sent to Northamptonshire Highways 4 minutes later. ref: 1589948.

Drains blocked and overflowing after rainfall. Reported in Feb 2019 under reference 964805, but this seems to have disappeared. Please unblock these drains. Disappointed with the lack of continuity from StreetDoctor to FixMyStreet and the report disappearing and no feedback. This issue has been going on for 6 months.

  • Drains still blocked. The photos show water emerging outside Springfield, running past Ivy House and then going into the drain at Hawthorn Cottage. Despite yesterday's torrential rain the other drains are working ok. This is a real problem as the spring opposite Ivy House is unable to drain and is seeping unstoppably into the garden at Spring Cottage. Please can you unblock these drains. 6 months since first notified.

  • THIS IS NOT RESOLVED. Water continues to run down the gutter well after rainfall has stopped, eroding the edge of the road surface, exactly as per the previously submitted photos. There have been visits to attempt to address the problem - the men on 15th November said they could not find the gully and marked the drain for further work. Please can you you fix this.
