Weeds growing in gulley drain.

During heavy rain the highway gulley drain directly opposite this property (46 St Johns Road) requires 'prodding' to clear away collected leaves etc and allow water to drain; this I have had to do several times over recent years. Last weekend I realised that weeds are growing inside the drain, at some depth but strongly and thus interfering with the flow of drain water. I suggest that this needs fairly early attention. Other drains in the same area do not appear to be similarly affected.
