Blocked road drains

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The drains along Newbury Street (between the market square and Ormond Road junction) have been blocked for at least a year. I have attached photos of one particularly bad one. Heavy rain results in large puddles in the road as they don't drain away. Our front door is directly onto the pavement, so when cars drive through the puddles it splashes into our front door. It also soaks passing pedestrians.
