Blocked overgrown drains

Reported via desktop in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 10:45, Thursday 25 November 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3142974.

The draft our new on the east side of The Hill are so blocked and overgrown that you can't even find them anymore. Also the same for those on the triangle which are on the south side ( we have been telling my you this for over a year now).

We have been reporting problems with these drains since for the past year and nothing has been done properly. Really don't want to repeat the flooding problems we experienced last Christmas. You emailed me yesterday saying the problem had been sorted but nothing has been done. They are just as bad, if not worse, than ever.
