Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 5 minutes later. ref: 1845574.
The side entry drain all along the side closest to Asda are not taking the water during periods of intense rain fall. This morning the left turn road is completely covered in water and most of the straight ahead road is also covered. People are unable to cross the road at this point due to the water and it make it very difficult to walk along the path due to risk of being splashed by traffic.

Thank you for your enquiry. Our public highways are inspected regularly and the drains will be cleaned as part of the Northamptonshire Highways routine roadside gully cleansing programme. Please be aware that the clearance of fallen leaves, along with other street debris that may be blocking drain covers, is the responsibility of Northampton Borough Council (NBC) and so the issue should be reported to firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0300 330 7000).
