2 blocked drains flooding more than half of narrow road, all of path and running over footpath onto private property. Floods our driveway behind electric gates and runs to rest against our house under the damp proof course. Drains are lowest point of village so often clog with dirt running down the road and from higher points around the village. Damage to 200 year old walls is occurring in the old centre of the village. Desperately need a clean out. It was happening last year but is so much worse this year. It blocks the path for us to walk with our children through the village and also is dangerous due to the depth of the water. Also uses as a bus route.
Thank you for reporting a fault on the highway. We will use the information you have provided to assess and prioritise this fault in accordance with our published response times for fault reports.

Both drains are blocked again and causing the same flooding as seen above.
Additionally there is heavy rutting and pot holes coupled with a collapsed footpath that all cause water to build up and obstruct flow to the drains which just makes the problem worse.
