  • The drain outside number 17 is now collapsing and water is starting to undermine the roadway. When will this be fixed. The water has been running for three weeks now.

  • This is getting worse as the days are going on, it looks like a stream now. Before you know it the whole street will be flooded over the Christmas period if nothing gets done. And now the drain outside of number 5 is also blocked.
