Blocked drain with vegetation growing out (pic 1&2). The next drain down the road is also mostly full with debris (3).

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways 1 minute later. ref: 1714043.

These drains located (1) at the entrance to Barn Acre and (2) just down the road by the grass verge have not been cleaned out for a very long time hence the greenery sprouting from number 1 and the debris filling number 2! Rain water runs down the sloping Ravensthorpe Road and does not get absorbed by the drains. In heavy rain, this then means that the entrance to Brookhill and Beech House becomes flooded. Please clean them out!
