Blocked Drainst

Reported via desktop in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 10:59, Thursday 25 November 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3143026.

The drains on the east side of The Hill are now so blocked and overgrown that they are impossible to see. The drain at the bottom of the hill cannot cope with the rain fall when these drains are blocked. As we are going into winter can you please sort them out. Have been reporting this problem since June on 'fix my street'. We really don't want to get flooded out again like we were last Christmas. You sent an email yesterday saying that these problems have been fixed but NOTHING HAS BEEN FIXED.
