Drain blocked with rubble, mud, leaves & litter

Reported via desktop in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 14:31, Sunday 11 October 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2335792.

It has been blocked for months and shows no sign of clearing by itself. There is a large puddle on street corner after a downpour. Also could be the cause of my own household drain smelling in summer even though it is absolutely clear. On occasion my own drain has become full and drains away very slowly even though there is no blockage on my property. My drain is just inside my property right next to the street pavement. Chipsey Ave has many trees and does not get swept regularly to clear leaves. It would be sensible and cost effective to check the other drains in case they are also blocked.
