Blocked Surface water drains - burst main causing flooding to drive as drains blocked

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 12:45, Tuesday 19 May 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2121228.

Reported burst water main but water unable to escape due to blocked drains in road causing flooding to driveways. Property owners have placed bricks across to divert water into stream and prevent property flooding but rendering driveways unusable. It is a regular occurrence along the first part of Station Rd Blisworth where several drains are completely blocked and have been for some considerable time despite a road sweeper cleaning the gutters a short time ago.
