Blocked drain

There is a drain in this location that is completely blocked I've reported this a while ago but nothing was done about it ! A few years ago this drain being blocked sent a river down the pathway in heavy rain which was redirected by a raised paving slab down my path causing a flood in my house ! I was promised at that point that the drain would be cleared every 18 months which has not happened!

There has just been another heavy storm and the drain again failed to take any other the water away as it's full therefore once again there was like a river down the path . Some of this once again came down my path due to the hill and started settling outside my front door . Had the rain not stopped I believe this would have caused another flood in my house!

I want this drain inspected as soon as possible because I will be seeking legal advice if this causes more damage to my home due to negligence on your behalf

Thank you
