Blocked drain causing extensive flooding on the footpath and muddying of the grass verge.

Reported in the Drainage category anonymously at 16:37, Monday 14 October 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

On the East side of Church Green towards the town end. The drain appears to be blocked, every time there is a few hours rain or a dudden downpour a large puddle appears which straddles the footpath and the grass verge. The puddle extends almost as far as the witney hotel. This reduces the width of available footpath and causes problems for parents with pushchairs, particularly at the start and end of the school day.
