Drain *STILL* blocked

Reported via desktop in the Blocked/Damaged category by Aaron Brailsford at 09:15, Wednesday 29 May 2024

Sent to West Northamptonshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 6032938.

Seriously, this is beyond the pale now.

Previously reported under 5313372 which was closed today as being resolved after five months of waiting and a couple of days of people looking down the hole, however the issue is most certainly not resolved - during periods of almost any rain the water comes UP AND OUT of this drain rather than down it; as you can see in the attached photo, the water has filled the drain and is now running down the street.

This has been previously reported and "fixed" under other reports: 5277195, 4545717, 3205026 but it has NEVER been fixed.
