Blocked drain causing flooding

Reported anonymously at 08:59, Tue 25 August 2020

The drain is blocked up to about 30cm below the surface. As soon as it rains, this fills up very quickly and causes localised flooding. This is right outside no.50 Chapel St There is a second drain close by but this struggles to cope in heavy rain as the drains are at the bottom of the hill. This has been an issue for many years. There was significant flooding in 2015 any, to my knowledge, they haven't been cleaned since.
