Water running down the road is freezing and causing hazardous sheet ice to form overnight leading to a danger for road users.

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later

Blocked drains are leading to a constant stream of water running down the lane towards Lidstone Bottom. Whenever the overnight temperature drops below freezing the lane is hazardous the following day. Vehicles frequently struggle to get up the hill towards the A44 and it is impossible to brake safely.
