Reported Blockage in Manhole and gulley beyond connected to drain

Reported via mobile in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 14:40, Sun 29 October 2023

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 5149753.

I reported a blockage ref Fix My Street 4600828 in May. On 22/6/23 I received a notice from FMS that defect was found and defect repair was ongoing. I had overheard the contractor say that the gulley under the manhole and 'caved in'. Another notice came from FMS on the same day to say it had been fixed. No repair work was done by the contractor on that day. On 8th August a routine clearing of the drains and gullies identified a blockage in the same gulley. The contractor said that they would request a camera be put down as he believed it was further down towards to soak away in the field on the land belonging to the farmer. The issue with this drain and gullies has been ongoing for over two years. I asked Ben Wright at Kier (twice) to follow up the request for a camera and repair the blockage. I have not heard from him so I am contacting Fix My Street.
