Blocked and permanently overflowing drain

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 10:50, Tuesday 25 February 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 5 minutes later. ref: 2020679.

Previous refs: 1844928, 1862738, 1914244. The problem with the drain previously referred to is still unresolved. The water flowing down the road in a permanent stream is now undermining the granite setts at the end of our drive. This is unacceptable as the problem was initially raised in November as part of a wider issue with 6 out of 10 drains above the 30mph limit on Hill Road being totally blocked. Action in 28 days was promised on 7th January, this has not happened. Will you PLEASE deal with this problem, it is now adversely affecting our property as well as being dangerous.
