Blocked drain after heavy rain this morning

Reported via desktop in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 10:31, Sun 31 October 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3094333.

This is a drain that blocks regularly after heavy rain. It was last cleared after my previous report (last year?) At the moment there is a large spread of water across the front of my drive. No flooding, as yet, but if we have any further heavy rain today there is a risk of water running through our garden.

  • The standing water has now drained away. This is, however, a consistently problematic drain and I would still wish it to be jetted before the winter really sets in.
