This drain is completely blocked

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 15:31, Thu 12 December 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways 6 minutes later. ref: 1885653.

The drain has become completely blocked by leaves, twigs and general road debris. This is causing water to build-up into large puddles that then begin to flood the road surface.

There is also considerable rutting and a number potholes along the side of the road and in the centre of the road which is making the problem of water run-off even worse as even if the drains where clear the water cannot easily run to them.
