  • Thank you for your update; however, I don't believe that work being carried out in 26 weeks is a quick enough turnaround. The photos that I have attached have been taken today when it has rained for most of the day. As you can see the water is at road level & this drain (& others) need to be cleared before autumn & winter fully hit. Unfortunately, when walking around the area & in the car I am concerned about the number of drains that are in a similar situation (no wonder floods are becoming more frequent in the UK if other counties have similar issues). I have today logged another drain that I spotted this morning driving to Sixfields & this has been logged against reference number 5014821. I would ask that this 'job' be reconsidered & brought forward on the 'To Do' list - but not only this drain, please check others across the town & county. Thank you
