Totally blocked drain - which has caused severe flooding in the past

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 11:31, Tuesday 28 July 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2219918.

Several years ago our home was flooded - our lounge and kitchen is in the basement. The Fire brigade pumped us out twice in six weeks - NCC came and installed this new drain and it has worked brilliantly ever since! however its now fully blocked - so as soon as we have a downpour it is likely to flood us again. The last time it was so bad that emergency ambulances could not get to the hospital and had to go via upper and lower Thrift Street to avoid flooding - can you please do this asap,or we will be in trouble again.
