Blocked drain

Drain completely silted up. I regularly keep it clear of leaves but the silt has built up in the drain. During the recent cold weather the blocked drain caused the water to run across the road and freeze, a complete skating rink for days as we don’t get gritters down here !

  • With the recent icy conditions followed by the bow stormy torrential rain this blocked drain provides an absolute death trap on our lane. It either means a skating rink or flood plane sound our homes . I reported this 12/2/19, nothing has been done. I clear the drain of leaves and debris all year round as we never see such a thing as a road sweeper around here, but the silt has built up in the drain and it is completely blocked. I pick up litter all around this area, I recycle, I pay my Council tax, I work full time, I just want the drain unblocked so that our lane is safe.
