Drain almost blocked - slow to clear in heavy rain.

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3079769.

The drain is slow to clear, after heavy rain the cycle track floods - some people have to walk through the puddle (if not cycling) as the puddle goes wall to wall. The green gullies on your map don't tally with the one in question, it is where the yellow circle is in 1 photo (which is looking towards the underpass that leads to Kennington). The photo was taken about 8am, by 3.30 it had cleared. It was not raining but had rained heavily the previous night. This is about the only time in 40 years I have seen this area flood.
