Blocked gutter drains on A510

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category by Pat Coles at 16:12, Sunday 23 May 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2744047.

The gutters all the way from Finedon to Wellingborough are full of debris, blocking the kerb drains. Any small amout of rain then quickly causes flooding right across the carriage way. This was very dangerous on 21/05/21 afternoon after heavy showers when vehicles were acqua planning and swerving to avoid them. This is just waiting for an accident to happen.
