Blocked Drain

Reported in the Loose / Raised/Sunken category anonymously at 15:07, Thu 19 September 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 13 minutes later. ref: 1773558.

When we have heavy rain the water is not draining away, instead there are large puddles on the footpath and the water is seeping down into our cellar. This year our cellar has flooded three times. Having removed the top part of the drain we have discovered that there is no pipe to drain the water away, hence the seepage into our cellar. The surrounding tarmac is also damaged and unsafe for pedestrians. Thanks Janet
