Drain outside my house and the one outside my next neighbour are both blocked

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 2 minutes later. ref: 1740818.

The drain outside my front door is completely blocked with silt etc and when it rains it floods over causing a large puddle over the footpath and the edge of the road. My net door neighbour also has a partially blocked drain out side there house,this fills up once my drain is full. This has been going on for several months and is getting worse.
