Blocked drain causes standing water problem .

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 10:10, Sun 18 October 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

This drain has been blocked for several years. In the winter, the water around freezes to give black ice. I and other cyclists have skidded and crashed, as it happens even on days when there isn’t ice elsewhere. It’s in a dip between Bycell crossroads and Chackmore. Thank you for investigating and hopefully clearing before this winter.
