Drain outside 1 Hillside Bungalows and Honesty Cottage, Water Stratford

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 18:30, Thursday 21 January 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The drain is a storm water drain on the main road through the village. It is in front of a telegraph pole half way through the village. It is and has been badly blocked for a couple of months, since the last verge cleaning lorry came through; rarely does the water level go down sufficiently , and so we have constant running water past our property. Currently this has been very alarming, as the water flow is now soaking over onto our property.
