Sandbags always on road by pub

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 16:59, Monday 10 February 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 2 minutes later. ref: 1990345.

I am concerned by the constant presence of sandbags that are so unsightly by the road outside the Dolphin Inn entrance. They are there obviously to prevent rainwater going into the pub area. Surely if that happens, the drains are not properly positioned on the road and this needs investigating to ensure the rainwater goes into the drains and not it into the pub. As I say the area just looks a complete mess . There is no complaint about the pub and I wish the new tenants every success.
