Blocked drain outside my house, 12 The Forty, causes significant flood which in heavy rain reaches my front door.

The drain and the sump under it is completely blocked with mud and gravel and needs emptying to make it operational. It was cleaned out a few years ago, but the problem has now built up again. It would be good if this could be done before winter sets in. Thanks

  • Re the previously reported blockage, the current rain is now causing the flood to extend to my front door, as shown in the latest photo. Can the drain be cleared as soon as possible?
