Small drain on footpath next to first house on Leyland Drive (footpath of Welford road) flooding private property.

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 13:10, Sun 16 June 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways 5 minutes later. ref: 1662468.

I reported this months back and apparently it was dealt with. The whole footpath floods when it rains, and this water floods into private property. It's not yet to cause damage but the wall is slowly being eaten at by regular flooding. The drain is blocked with soil/mud/roots. The drain is located next to the green phone/virgin box as pictured at the junction of Leyland Drive and Welford Road.

  • Drain has been partially unblocked but still a substantial amount of soil and roots which continue to encourage flooding, is it still to be reviewed?
