Blocked drain causing backing up and potentially the source/cause of internal property flooding at Kislingbury School

Reported via desktop in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 22:27, Wednesday 21 October 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2351918.

Kislingbury Primary School has experienced internal property flooding on a number of occasions as a result of heavy rainfall - this has occurred for some years now. The reason for this hasn't been clear but following recent heavy rainfall it was noticed that the surface water drain outside the school in 'School Lane' is blocked and the smaller drain on the school car park unable to drain. the pictures attached show the problem and the fact that the drain overflows down the road as it cannot drain. Please can this blockage be resolved as it may resolve the internal property flooding to two classrooms.
