Continued blocked drain causing flooding to property

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 18:33, Thu 26 December 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways 2 minutes later. ref: 1905844.

Blocked drain is causing flooding to my property. This has been reported several times now and each time it has been drained it has refilled within a few hours as the drain has collapsed underneath. It has flooded my lounge and there is now a constant drenched floor due to this. I am having to constantly vax the drain water from the carpet which will need replacing. I have a newborn baby and this is now a health issue for myself and my baby. Please can someone please advise what can be done about this as it can’t just keep being drained to return less than a few hours later. Kind regards

  • I went over a large pothole between Quinton and Courtenhall just before the under pas where the M1 goes over the road.It damaged my tyre so badly that I have had to have a new one.I have photo's if you would like to see them .It measures 130mm deep x 1.2metres length x 600mm width. I wish to make a claim for the cost of a new tyre.
