Road flooding in storms

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category by John Thomason at 11:35, Tuesday 25 June 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 6 minutes later. ref: 1673594.

There are 6 side inlet gulleys on this low section of the road, which are all blocked. I have cleared the inlets of the drains, which makes no difference. I have checked one which is at least 4 feet deep and is full of sludge, so the drains need sucking out and clearing. As you will see from the photograph, this floods across half the road, which is dangerous as cars either pull over to avoid it, or they can get knocked off course if they hit the water without realising. This is not just a nuisance, but it is a danger to life as there have been two fatal accidents in the stretch of the road in the last two years. I hate hearing about fatal accidents so I hope you can deal with this. John Thomason, Flore flood warden.
