Drain between The Briars & Lindfield next to the telegraph pole opposite The Old Orchard

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 14:06, Fri 28 August 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

When it rains the drain appears to be blocked. This means it overflows onto the road & subsequently down the pavement & into our driveway at Lindfield. During the recent cloud burst the water was 10cm deep & extend over our entire drive an area approx. 5m X 10m . The remaining water continues to flow down the road into the drain outside Timbers. This is now happening everytime we have heavy rain. This problem needs to be fixed soon as the water nearly came over our doorstep.
