Further to report 40140177 there are additional drains which are blocked. Can these please be cleaned and investigated as I believe these drains do not flow anywhere (possibly damaged pipes underground). My property was flooded as a result of the drains not working in this street on Thursday. Can this please be urgently attended to stop a recurrence of flooding to properties.

  • Following continued light rain over night accumulation of rain water. Luckily it’s not heavy rain this time! The drains are still blocked!! Pedestrians are unable to use this section of road! Cars are causing waves and spray to parked cars and houses! Properties remain at risk of flood! Apart from constant acknowledgment of emails reference numbers, changing status and department moving can the actual issue be taken on and actioned?
