Blocked street drain leads to flooding and vehicle splashing every time it rains, then slowly drains away so it later looks like no problem.

Because the street drains each side of the Park St speed hump (88 - 90 OX9 3hx) are shallow and drain laterally, they soon silt up and lead to gutter flooding. They drain away slowly so often appear to be working until the next time it rains.
