Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 1 minute later. ref: 1713975.
This causes flooding in the cellar of No 71 - the start of the flooding is shown in the picture - the water can completely cover the cellar floor a few inches deep - not an emergency but preventable. This was reported recently and someone investigated but the report was that " we can't see a problem". That's because it hadn't been raining at the time!
There are two drains that require cleaning - one in the road which can't be seen because it's covered by water and one in the grass bank. From past experience once these are both cleared the problem disappears.
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.
