Multiple blocked drains

Reported via iOS in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 17:40, Wed 30 December 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2454122.

On 23rd December, we had a significant amount of rain, but none of the drains on the west side of church end coming down the hill from the a508 were taking much water. I live at No. 19 and it was only through the efforts of neighbours that we weren’t flooded. Photo shows the run off from the field. On closure inspection, most appear to be totally blocked up.

  • 2 out of 3 of the drains are still totally blocked on the left hand side of the photo (Before the village sign). The next one on the left hand side closest to the photo has a very high water level, but not sure if that is normal or not.
