Drain is too close to a large tree and the root of the tree is damaging the drain and pipework

Reported via mobile in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 18:07, Thursday 8 April 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2660772.

The root of this large tree completely damaging and blocking the functionality of the drain. Pipework needs to be looked at, checked and repair needs to be considered. Nearby properties / gardens and basements are flooded regularly, as rainwater can not go down effectively. The road and pavement regularly flooded as well, due to the effect of the large root system of the tree and blockage by the leafs. Needs a good clean and an overall check, possible consideration of the removal of the tree. Thanks
