Drain soak aways either side of road causing considerble erosion across road and flooding

Reported in the Blocked drain category by Mary Simmons at 17:27, Sunday 16 February 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

When it rains all the water from the M40 bridge flows down to Whiteoaks creating a river causing considerable erosion and creating a lake with damage to property eitherside of the drive. . This was reported years ago and the problem was solved by clearing the gullies eitherside of the road and the manhole in the grass verge in front of Wychend. This has been reported on numerous occasions this year, with no action.I have photos
