Collapsed drain

Reported via desktop in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 12:21, Monday 2 August 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2908126.

This drain and the one opposite can't take away rain water, every time it rains the road is flooded and also the corner pavement outside no 22 Robinson Road - there are airbricks here which will allow water in. This has been the case for at least 3 years. The vacuum machine to clear drains has been out numerous times to no effect, the problem would seem to be tree roots from the gardens of the club opposite
