The drain is blocked outside our house. It has flooded the street and has also overflowed onto our driveway and in our garage. We had 2 inches of water in the garage because the drain outside is blocked and not draining properly

  • Thank you for your enquiry. Due to current weather events we have issues with flooding all over the county. If you feel your property is at risk, please contact the emergency services or contact our call centre on 0345 310 11 11 to request sandbags. If this road is impassable, please let the call centre staff know and we can get the road closed or erect flood boards. Once the water has dispersed, we will take a look at the drainage but often it is the volume of water that causes the issue. We will monitor this area on our routine inspections. Regards
