Road drain outside number 18 stewkley road wing

Reported in the Blocked drain category by Tom Siddall at 10:52, Fri 20 December 2019

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Hi we have an ongoing drainage problem is my part of stewkley road. The road drain outside my house ( number 18) in times of heavy rain is discharging water rather than taking it. The road floods from my house all the way down to the doctor's surgery where the drain start's taking water again. My property is lower than the highway and becomes flooded due to the water running off the road and down my drive. I believe that the actual pipe is blocked / damaged in the section from my property ( end of the lay-by) towards the doctor's surgery , at least 3 road drains are affected. Please help. Many thanks Tom Siddall. Ps I have video footage, please let me know how to send it.

    This is a photo of the water coming out of the road drain out side our house, it must be something to do with the actual pipe under the road. When it rains lightly the water goes away but with heavy rain it comes up from below.
