Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 10:57, Tue 5 November 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 4 minutes later. ref: 1832546.

There are 5 blocked drains on Ashton road between Lower End and Oak Leaf Care. The above drains are on the corner of Ashton Road, where the footpath go's to Oak Leaf Care entrance. The above drains are thoroughly blocked and they don't take any water away, there is even water flowing over the footpath, there must be a major issue in this area with water not draining away, Water is flowing like a river in this area to the junction to Ashton Village . I have reported this issue a few times and it still as not been resolved yet, I have seen workmen trying to clear the above with long poles with no success. Can I ask you please, that a full inspection takes place to resolve the above issues in this area. There still water flowing after a few dry days in the above area.
