Two drains blocked and cars are pushing the water into the shops

Reported via mobile in the Blocked drain category by Sherrilyn Bateman at 14:11, Tuesday 16 February 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The residents, shop owners and I have been reporting this issue every few weeks and we have had no response. Please advise when the drains will be cleaned to allow the water and slush to drain away.

Residents are getting splashed in dirty water from the road. The same water is impacting into the shops. One resident has fallen on the iced puddles.
