Between the side of the Chequers Inn Pub and the front of the access road to the right of the timber framed & white painted houses opposite

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 09:43, Fri 3 July 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Both the drain highlighted on the map and the one to it's left on the opposite side of the road (outside the from of the Chequers Inn pub flooded last night and water backed up after a short sharp shower. I am concerned that due to the water backing up near my property, this may lead to more severe flooding in the Autumn/Winter if not dealt with now. The water drained away after about an hour of the rain stopping but this is very worrying. Cars were driving past pushing waves closer to my house. The water rose about 5 inches up my wellies when I stood on the blocked grate/ above ground level.
