  • The photos show: 1) the water still seeping out under the tarmac 2) the condition of the drain area today 3) a 2 year old picture of the water streaming out of this drain cover that was used to report this issue back then !!

  • This footpath is in a dangerous state and needs urgent action. If a full repair cannot be carried out yet it needs to be made safe

  • Hi there,

    Since the recent rains of the last few days this has got progressively worse. The tarmac has lifted further and really constitutes a trip danger on the pathway. The water is also flooding out of the obviously blocked drain and running down the road before disappearing down a road drain. When we had the severe rains and flooding of a few weeks ago, this water contributed to the flooding in the High Street (where we live). It really does need cleaning out and fixing before an even larger hole opens up. Regards Colin
