The ditches behind properties 24, 22 are experiencing flooding into their properties due to the ditches being blocked. There are large amounts of leaves, twigs and branches preventing water to adequately drain. It is visibly full. The ditches are located on the field side of the road. On both sides of the farmer's gate where horses are kept. The problem is worse on the right side of the gate. During heavy rainfall the water in the ditch is a sizeable puddle and sits thereby flooding the road and properties.
