Footpath Floods, children have to walk on busy main road

Reported in the Obstruction (Not Vegetation) category anonymously at 07:33, Thu 17 October 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 2 minutes later. ref: 1808377.

Everytime there is any significant amount of rain the corner of beech road and Wellingborough road floods and often covers the entire footpath, leaving going children needing to walk on the busy Wellingborough road or get soaking wet feet.

It appears a number of drains maybe blocked, especially along the Wellingborough road (coming from Weston favell) as the water appears to run straight over the drains that run from the nearby pedestrian crossing down to beech avenue.
