Leak into my land causing swamp in wet weather

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 14:19, Thursday 18 June 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

After a period of heavy rain, a patch of my land becomes swamp-like. It is very near a drain plus manhole cover situated on the other side of the fence in Amersham Road. Ir seems likely that there is some sort of leakage into my land. The "swamp" dries out in a dey spell, such as we had until recently.

BTW, the map re my property (no. 32) is wrong.
