There has been a long term problem with a blocked drain on the east side of Main Street just north of the Laurel Crescent turning. Every time there is heavy rain, a lake forms which is hazardous to passing traffic and causes vulnerable pedestrians to be soaked. This urgently needs unblocking.

Council ref: ENQ20859236

  • The update from Friday may be a mistake - the photo is not of the same flooded area - maybe this was supposed to refer to another report?
