Drain in front of Jasmine Cottage on the same side of road.

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 16:35, Thursday 4 February 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Drain was examined on or about 28 January 2021 by drain cleaning operatives of the council. Grating lid could not be removed to clean it. Since that time a puddle 70 ft (20 meters) long by half the road width wide and 6inches (150mm) deep has followed even modest falls of rain, see photo. This prevents us from walking out of our house.. I have records of this drain causing problems going back to 2005 and last wrote to the chairman of Bucks CC in 2016.
