Major puddle of water

Reported via mobile in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 19:57, Wednesday 3 February 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Just opposite the cricket club. Serious build up of water. Completely swamped my car when driver went through it and I was on other side of the road. I couldn't see any. It was like a mini sunami. I was terrified and applied my brakes and fortunately didn't hit anything and came to a safe stop. There is a smaller version just outside the entrance to the golf club on the same road.
