  • I suspect that whilst a temporary repair to the tarmac has been applied water is flowing out of the drain.i think there is a burst water main adjoining the gutter drain. Water has been flowing out of the drain for months and still is despite the dry weather.

  • Drain still soaking up the lovely fresh water escaping from the burst main.
