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.
