Blocked ditch causing flooding

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category by David Elliott at 13:30, Monday 30 September 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 5 minutes later. ref: 1786418.

There is a ditch on Cranford Road opposite number 56 that is blocked solid and is causing water to back up with a threat of flooding our row of houses again. This situation has already damaged private property and cost people money/caused insurance claims. The land owner has refused to clear the ditch and has even dumped muck into it to block it further. We have had the emergency tanker out over the weekend to try get rid of some of the water. I am available on 07919093948 or at david_elliott_37@hotmail.com if anyone would like to discuss this further. Thanks
