  • I should have said the drains are 'blocked' not 'locked'

  • Dear Sir / madam the recent flooding has made the road completely flooded and I am unable to walk outside of my gate due to the depth of water. It is now dangerous to exit my drive in the car as traffic is using the middle of the road to avoid deep flooding and therefore this is dangerous to me and any oncoming traffic. Please can the drains be unblocked as soon as possible, thanks D Gould

  • You have fixed one of the two drains. The drain that has not been fixed is outside Eastwoods. The drain that you have fixed is outside Pucks Paigles. There is still flooding due to the blocked drain outside Eastwoods. Please can you unblock this drain too. Thank you

  • Dear Sirs, you only fixed one of the 2 drains. The drain directly outside Eastwoods in Burtons Lane is still blocked causing significant flooding. Please can you unblock this drain
