Sunken drain cover and deep pothole

Reported via desktop in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 10:20, Tue 16 November 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3126310.

The drain cover outside 62 East St has sunk and there is a deep pothole formed.

This happened since the recent very heavy rain

The drain has been blocked for years which has not helped matters as water does not flow away and forms a river down the street when heavy rain occurs.

Note the blocked drain has been repeatedly reported in the past but no action taken
