Blocked Drain causing flooding to homes/gardens

Reported via desktop in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 13:59, Fri 25 December 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2447173.

The drain is blocked causing flooding in Fullwell road and also in back gardens/homes at the end of Wollaston road. During heavy rain this drain fills and cascades out of a manhole cover and into gardens/homes like a river. Sandbags saved our home from being flooded on Wednesday and with more rain forecast, this issue needs looking at.
