B4009 downhill towards wendover, approx 200 m below princess marygate roundabout

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 19:52, Sat 6 June 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The blocked drains previously reported under 40116832 and 40118454 were reported cleared on 4th may 2020. However within minutes of moderate to heavy rain on the evening of 6 th June, both drain covers were backed up with water causing 50% of the downhill carriageway to flood until the water reached a clear drain further down the hill. Even when the rain ceased it took some time for the water to fall below the drain cover surfaces.
