Gully completely blocked - approx 20cm mud on road

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 10:20, Tuesday 2 March 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

This area was flooded last week due to a burst water main. Affinity water closed the road, The flood has now subsided, however there is a 20cm ridge of mud at the side of the road which is also covering the gully, This all needs to be removed and the gully cleared. THis is a main access route to Chalfont St Giles and caused chaos in the village when it was closed last week. If the gully is cleared but the mud not removed the gully will just full up with mud again when it next rains.
