Blocked Drains Causing Stench

At least three of the drains along Minehead Road are blocked - outside No 14, and the next two along are certainly blocked. This is causing what can only be described as a stench, both on the road, and inside our house (and presumably other houses too). This was reported to the council over a week ago, and we have heard nothing. The recent snow and wind eased the problem, but it is back now.

  • Problem has now been fixed. Took some tooing and froing between the water board and the council, but now we can walk along the road without wanting to vomit.
