  • Surface water is not draining away adequately. It can be 30cm deep. A previous problem some years ago was caused by an emergency overflow valve discharging into the river being blocked. It's possible this valve needs cleaning and maintenance. Anglian water have attended and confirmed the problem is with the highway surface drains.
