Blocked Drains

Reported in the Drainage category by David Carter at 19:12, Tue 28 July 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The drainage here runs into an open ditch and in 2016 was altered to stop debris, ie straw, grass cuttings etc blocking the outflow pipe. these drains to my knowledge have not been cleaned (and the intermediate catchment chamber) regularly and are now blocked solid,resulting in flooding completely across the complete carriage way. Could this be dealt with ASAP as when this floods the water gets onto our property. I have tried to free up the drains myself in the past but now given the state they are in is pa st me.
