Blocked drain causing large area of standing water after rain

Reported via mobile in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 19:51, Monday 12 February 2024

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 5568436.

This drain on the corner of the lane, What3Words ///caller.eggplants.grips or 52.0776029, -1.2186643, is completely blocked. It has now become a habitat for worms when the weather isn’t bad, and develops a small pond after rain. Residents have attempted to remove some of the blockage but it has had little effect and needs a proper clean out. Thank you.
