Back to all reports

I have a photo outside my house at 15, Church Green, Witney and adjacent St Mary's Primary School showing what happens when there is a downpour. The drain rapidly blocks with debris and the area floods. The water reaches within inches of my house risking flooding my sub-floor and cellar. Thames Water have examined it and declared it to be your responsibility. I have informed my insurers. Can you please take appropriate action or tell me who I should contact?
