The pictures were taken at 16:39 a good 30 minutes after it had stopped raining. My Son had told me that water was gushing from this drain cover at about 13:30 in the afternoon I went up to post a letter at 16:39 and water was still flowing from the cover as you can see. This is about as high as you can get on Moorlands and down by my house number 26 where water had been gushing from the cover in the middle of the road earlier on, it was now OK. Looks like a problem could be brewing which will result in someone’s house being flooded. I think you need to investigate. I would like to add that water gushing from the drain covers in the road is usually after a cloud burst. Today’s rain seemed a steady downpour.
