Blocked during heavy rainfall

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 13:44, Wed 27 November 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways 3 minutes later. ref: 1864760.

Drain right at the very bottom of Porlock Close. This drain does not clear when the rainfall is quite heavy. It creates quite a big puddle of water. Last year I witnessed some builders pouring wet cement down this drain to dispose of it. This could be the problem?
