B482 outside Fingest Grove and Fingest Close (The Old Coach house and The Lodge

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 11:31, Monday 11 May 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

This blocked drain takes water from a ditch that runs alongside the property. With heavy rainfall the ditch turns into a running stream and with the blocked drain this now floods my garden and my greenhouse. The drain has been blocked For many months and the problem has been a persistent one. I have tried with a metal rod to break down the blockage but it’s very compact and goes a long way down so I have been unsuccessful in doing so.
