Blocked soakaway

Reported via desktop in the Pothole / Failed Reinstatement category anonymously at 10:08, Thu 5 August 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2915746.

This was reported over two years ago when work was completed in the path by KBC. Our (The Red Lion Inn, Rothwell) drain pipe used to go into this soakaway but contractors blocked the path soakaway so the water just pumps out of the ground when there is a rainstorm. We are reporting now as in the winter the public pathway floods and obviously freezes when frosts occur providing a skating rink. This is dangerous and needs completing before the Winter months. Not a huge job to stop any injuries on a very busy high street.
