Blocked/Collapsed drain under road

Reported in the Flooded subway category anonymously at 14:52, Friday 17 January 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire County Council moments later

Every time there is rain now the road floods here. But now seems to get worse with every downfall. My understanding is that the drain that runs under the road has collapsed. I seen several people from the village try to "unblock" it but the entrance isn't actually blocked. The result is that water only disappears by a very heavy stream running down the side of the road to the nearest ditch which is a good 800 yds away
