Two Drains blocked and overspilling onto main road

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 16:40, Wed 11 December 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 1 minute later. ref: 1884242.

Both these drains are obviously blocked as the water is full to the top and running down Windsor Road. This drain water is running into the cul de sac opposite Kent Road and when frozen over is causing a large ice patch. There are elderly residents and young children in this area which makes it dangerous. Also the constant flow of drain water down the road is so unhygenic.
