Water draining onto road

Reported via mobile in the Blocked drain category by Mark Robins at 10:54, Saturday 13 February 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

I have just witnessed an elderly walker fall over on the ice causing injury and shock. I completely understand it is very cold and it is reasonable to expect ice under foot but the state of upper section on Station Road is unacceptable. The storm water drains along station road are all blocked. Water emerges from outside the front of Swanbourne School and flows along the surface on the road causing it to very very wet. Over the last week it has frozen, continues to flow and re-freezes. The ice is now neatly 2 inches thick across the width of the road and is very dangerous to road users in vehicles, pedal cycles and pedestrians. Please could this been given immediate attention.
