The drain lid/upper has collapsed and is now full of mud so the whole area floods instead of draining away when it rains

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 12:52, Thu 12 December 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 4 minutes later. ref: 1885316.

This drain/manhole cover is at the end of my drive, at the end of our boundry hedge and the outer edge of the drain cover (the concrete area) has all broken up and therefore the lid has fallen in to the drain. The drain has blocked with mud and grit that runs off down the road and now the area floods when it rains.
