Drain Completely Blocked

Reported via mobile in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 00:21, Thursday 14 October 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3061297.

As can be seen in the pictures this drain is completely blocked with a mixture of leaves, silt, twigs, grit and general road dirt & debris which has clogged it and made it unable to handle surface runoff water.

The drain requires cleaning and tested ASAP and certainly before the winter season arrives.
