Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 1660771.
B569 between Irchester and Knuston. During and after heavy rain the road in the dip between Irchester and Rushden becomes BADLY flooded. Half of the road is often underwater during heavy rain and vehicles are using/trying to use the other side of the road to avoid the water. In the gutter, the water gets fairly deep. Request drain and drainage channels are investigated and possibly cleared. Thank You. GS.
