100% rear of Somerville way 23 which linksTo rear of 27 Somerville way .. the drain is in Stevenson close

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 11:06, Sun 12 July 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Number 23 Somerville way is working as buy and sell cars and is dumping used oil directly down the drain here . There are many loads of oil now dumped here and I am worried this will cause issues in the near future.

They have also dumped sawdust down the drain , I have been advised to report this directly to yourselves and with full details Of the address doing this .

I have also been talking to my neighbour further and they have advised the Oil in the drains looks like they are working as a business from here for Buy and Sell Cars too ...

They sold three cars last month and then bought two more . There was Ford Mondeo and skoda octavia silver

The oil changes come from these car sales then the oil gets dumped down the drain outside the back of their house ..

The oil is still there , tbh it will be there now for years , So you can also see the proof of these .
