Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 1812127.

The drain from the Church to the turning at Islington became blocked after heavy rain in the summer. There is now a constant flow of water from every drain along Church Street.

We are concerned as several years ago this happened. The water froze and a car skidded and hit our house.

  • Hi. A drain engineer unblocked 1 drain earlier this week, but all the other drains are still blocked with water pushing upwards out of at least 2 drains.

    As I mentioned in the original report, this is the entire length of Church Street which includes 4 to 5 drains. This still isn't fixed.
