Blocked drain outside 43,Barnfield SL0 0AL

Reported via mobile in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 20:58, Tuesday 12 January 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

My mother is 88 years old and is awaiting a hip replacement she’s also very unsteady on her feet , and when the road is flooded she finds it very difficult to get in and out of her pathway to put her bins in and out as she can not see the kerb under the water . Also when the water does subside the path and road is full of sludge and very slippery , I have to tend to my mum very frequently and have to keep my wellingtons in my car so I can get in and out of my mums path . This has been happening for some months now , and would appreciate it very much if the drain can be unblocked and the path and road cleaned. Thanking you Awaiting in anticipation for your earliest reply.
