Drains completely blocked

Reported via desktop in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 19:14, Thursday 22 July 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2884225.

I know that both the gully selected and the one higher up are both completely full of silt/rubbish and are completely blocked. When there is a downpour water passes straight over them and down the road. The low point at the junction of Church Hill and Teeton Road often floods. One gully opposite doesn't exist and water misses the other one in the end of Church Gardens.
