Highway constantly flooded caused by blocked ditches.

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 20:37, Thursday 9 January 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 4 minutes later. ref: 1928814.

The ditches on both sides of the highway are blocked. There has been an occasional flood at this site for many years, but with the high rainfall recently there is now a constant flood here with water right across the highway. It is a significant hazard for vehicles turning off the B4525. If there is further rain and/or a freeze the situation will become worse.
