Drain completely blocked

Reported via desktop in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 13:52, Mon 16 August 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2938554.

This was reported on 010221 as incident 2515442 and has now been closed due to being 'completed'. However, three drains were blocked including another one outside no. 68 and it has taken to 'fix' the problem that they all got considerably worse over the past 6 months (as you can see from the pictures). The only drain that was cleared was outside no. 72. This is a very poor service and during heavy rain the water pools down at the junction with Westmorland Drive. If one drain is blocked then when it's inspected then other drains on the same section of road should also be inspected. The problem appears to be caused by the needles coming from a large tree outside no. 68/70, which then block the drains. Lets hope that we don't have to wait another 6 months for the job to be done properly
