  • URGENT Your highways team visited and attempted to unblock the drains last week but the problem persists. Water is still flowing over Kiln Lane out of the drain for metres down to Daventry Rd. Can someone please urgently inspect as when we get heavy rainfall the bottom of Kiln Lane and Daventry road are flooding badly.

  • Drains still overflowing - a constant flow which due to the freezing temperatures is causing dangerous icy conditions approaching a give way onto a main road. Kiln Lane is a single track road without pavement, pedestrians are being put a risk by the dangerous conditions. Needs urgent attention.
