    This is our close after a rainy night. This happens everytime it rains. The water has stopped spilling out of our guttering and down our buildings walls now as it’s stopped raining but it’s like a water fall while it’s raining. My house is not the only house that has been effected by the blocked drains backing up in our close there are at least three others who have also complained. We need to get the drains sorted ASAP before the houses in our close are badly damaged from this.
