Two surface water drains full of soil and debris causing flooding WHEN it rains.

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 09:10, Sat 5 October 2019

I reported this a week ago and your inspector must have visited at a time when it wasn't raining, hence his comments that no flooding was apparent. The surface water drains here are blocked solid with mud and debris which is obvious when viewed.
