Main gully drain almost completely blocked

Reported via mobile in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 09:03, Monday 26 April 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2691255.

This gully drain has become more and more blocked worsening for months. I first noted a few months ago and since then due to nearby road surface breakup (pothole) and what appears simply to be a huge build up of road side dust & gravel etc consequently the drain blockage has worsened considerably. This situation reduces the effectiveness of the drain and may contribute to local flooding in heavy rain situations if it is nit cleared and sucked out properly
