This problem was reported twice last year and each time it was dealt with by a quick burst of water without properly removing the blockage. The blockage has completely solidified and is now near the top of the drain opening . The problem is that each time it rains heavily the water ( which is flowing downhill to this point) cannot drain but runs off from the road and floods the nearby property. Last year each time we had up to 4 inches of water in the house because the drain was blocked. Please could you clear by means of actually extracting the debris. Many thanks.
