Drains still blocked

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 2 minutes later

The drains down Baldon Row are completely blocked, which leads to the road semi-permanently flooding during autumn, winter and spring. For months, it's impossible to walk up the lane without Wellington boots on as it can be quite deep. The main issue is on the corner of Baldon Row - opposite the house sign for 'Fairoak House' (the dead-end lane), NOT the up on the main road between Marsh and Toot Baldon. As you go down the lane from the main road, on the first left-hand bend the drain (on the left) is completely blocked and doesn't drain away into the ditch on the opposite side, as I believe it should. Further down this lane, for around 200 yards, there are 4 further drains that are completely blocked with stones and debris. This adds complications down the hill as there is too much run-off rain water.
