Drain blocked with leaves

Reported via desktop in the Blocked/Damaged category by Debra Styles at 09:47, Thursday 14 October 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3061702.

The storm drain directly outside the Cemetery is blocked with leaves. Would appreciate all the drains in the village to be checked before the Autumn/Winter rains arrive please. The water tends to run down Cobbs Lane and pools in Manchester Road causing flooding at no 20. Other flooding in the village too caused by blocked drains. Thanks
