Drain completely full and blocked with sediment, leaves, debris, peebles from a loca driveway.

Reported via mobile in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 16:46, Monday 4 January 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2461169.

After this new drain was sited, a, few metres up from 4 Careys Rd Pury End, approx 5yrs ago it has blocked every few months so becomes ineffective. Large volumes of water flow down Careys Rd every time it rains and the last 2 drains in the road are overwhelmed when this one blocks. If poss it needs clearing at least twice annually. We keep it clear of surface debris but this isn't enough. The last heavy rain put the properties at the end of the road in Lower Street at real risk of flooding. Thanks
