On Tuesday 24 September, Wellingborough Probation Office (20 Oxford Street, Wellingborough, NN8 4HY) was badly flooded, causing substantial damage. Now that the water has subsided we can tell that the flood was caused by blocked drains in Oxford Street. With more rain due we need the drains cleared ASAP before the office floods again. We have a video of the flooding if required.
