Drainage system unable to cope with rain

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category by Dave Gaster at 09:48, Tue 15 October 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 5 minutes later. ref: 1805531.

Despite many of the gullies being recently emptied alongside the shops, the street trees are constantly dropping leaves that block the drainage system, including after being mulched into a slime. About 20mm of water was standing on the west side of the street, then flowing across the road to the east, then down buckingham road. I have a short video, but no photo. (See Twitter)
