Drains blocked causing severe run off in road during heavy rain

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 12:38, Monday 27 July 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The drain directly in the road directly opposite the entrance to Ivy Lee Cottage is blocked. It appears most of the drains in Lower Way are blocked. With the heavy rain on Saturday (25 July) and this road being on a downhill gradient, water at least an inch deep was rushing down the road. Please could you send a team out to inspect and clear all the drains in Lower Way. The drain opposite Ivy Lee Cottage is clearly and visibly full of sand, stones and debris right to the top of the drain cover and road surface level.
