The road drain is blocked and has backed up the drain on the footpath. The road drain is also raised and not flush

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category by Ian Collins at 20:17, Mon 28 September 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2316057.

The road drain is raised and not flush with the road so water cannot escape into it. It has foliage growing which has backed up the footpath drain which does not allow water to escape.

I have tried to unblock it bit it is deep within the pipe leading from the path drain to the road.
