Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Highways drain blocked Moreton Road somewhere below 112, on right side of road as go north out of Buckingham. This is causing flooding in several gardens and driveways from 112 up to our garden at 144. (I didn't walk further down than 112). Water running down other side of road crosses Moreton road just after Zebra crossing around 112 as well.

  • In the evening of 23 Dec at 144 Moreton Road our whole garden approx 20m x10m was under water to a depth of 50cm ,some of this water then came into our cellar, where we do have a pump, but we still needed to move our possessions.
