Blocked drains - flooding

Reported in the Drainage category anonymously at 10:37, Sun 15 December 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 3 minutes later

Several roadside drains completely blocked with mud and debris. Every time it now rains, the road gets flooded completely across, and doesn't drain away due the blocked drains. 1 drain outside roadside cottages blocked, 4 or so drains to Southwest of village green opposite stone wall (they are so silted up they are hard to find). Problem has been present since the first big rains this Autumn when a lot of mud and leaf fall were sucked down the drains and it has got progressively and quickly worse so that even a small amount of rain floods the road. The other day cars had to be rescued out of the flood. Many thanks for clearing out last year, I think this needs to be a regular job of sucking out the drains, given how fast the drains block again.
