Road surface water drain blocked outside our property.

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category by Michael Bailey at 16:41, Wed 14 August 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways 4 minutes later. ref: 1732314.

During the last two downpours our rear drains have backed up and flooded our rear patio. I have contacted Anglian Water who are coming to inspect our drainage but they told me to contact you regarding the road’s blocked drains as they may be causing the water backup. There is soil to the top of the drain and no water can enter. This is true of several drains near our property.
