  • Thank you for your report. Sorry for the delay in response. The gully issue will be included in our forthcoming gully cleansing programme. As there is limited budget we have to prioritise high flood risk areas. Sometimes it is the volume of water that falls and our drains are unable to cope but the water eventually disperses. If this occurs again and you feel your home is at risk please contact either the emergency services or our call centre on 0345 310 1111, to request sandbags. If the road is impassable please let the call centre staff know and we can get the road closed or have flood boards erected. This report is now closed.
