Blocked drain outside my back gate

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 11:04, Sunday 16 February 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 2001117.

There is a drain outside my back gate (house no.11) that is blocked with mud and leaves and is very small. Whenever we have heavy rain fall it floods and I get a stream running through my garden. I have lived at this address for over 30 years and have only seen it cleared once, and that was after I reported it a few years ago, but it was never cleared properly, therefore the problem has returned. The gentlemen that came to clear it said that it needed a gully drain to carry the water away.
