This drain has been blocked solid with building waste for months. This is third time ive reported it. Each time its apparently fixed or ok without any change to it whatsoever or any sign the cover has been lifted

This time when you come out contact us to prove you actually come out

Its very likely this is going to cause flooding again over the next three days

  • When i last looked this drain was still full. It appears to be full to the bottom, thus blocking most of the flow from the upstream drains that area of road. It means about 50m2 of extra road heading towards one drain. How on earth BCC can think thats Ok to leave is beyond me. But they know best.

  • Would it be too much trouble to unblock a drain and prevent flooding.
