Reported via desktop in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 10:45, Wed 30 November 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 4004979.

This drain is blocked , with heavy rain it over flows onto the path The gutter ( until I cleared it ,) was inches thick with silt caused by rotting leaves , the water then flows Onto my drive and into my garage. This drain is on the Harborough Road , the major A 508 road opposite a busy B P garage . In a section classed as Glan - Y - Mor terrace . and cars leaving this garage drive through the over flow flooding the path. There is a school for disabled children approx 150 yards from this drain ,and it is dangerous when the drain is over flowing for them to walk on the path, Could you please take action, thank you
