Drains blocked at frontage of number 15 SwallowLane and opposite number 3 Swallow Lane.

Reported anonymously at 15:15, Sat 24 October 2020

The two drains identified are still blocked despite being reported in February this year. The water collects and then backs up across number 11 Swallow Lane and eventually onto my property, 7 Swallow Lane, which is the low point of the road. During the very heavy rain on the weekend of 3 October the surface water from this blockage inundated my property ( we were away at the time) and resulted in 3 feet of water in my cellar. On our return from a short break on 7 October we discovered the flooded cellar and had to call the fire brigade to pump it out. We have since been without heating as our boiler was located in the cellar and has had to be scrapped. We are currently dealing with our insurance company but I am also considering taking legal action against the Council for not dealing with this issue first reported some 8 months ago.. To date I have not had any updates from the initial February report to say any remedial work has been carried out. This is totally unacceptable.
