Solidly blocked drain, may cause flooding and damp to properties during heavy rain

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 09:21, Tue 24 September 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 5 minutes later. ref: 1778508.

I recently moved into one of the cottages adjacent to Faulkners Shoe Shop. I am rather concerned that the drain to the front of the two properties, (i.e. by the corner near the bins), is solidly blocked. Should this remain it could cause problems during heavy rain as the water will be unable to drain away, which could also result in dampness seeping into the cottages.
