Blocked drain outside 53 Rooks Lane. When there is heavy rain a large lake forms which drains all the way down the road and empties into the drain on Southern Road. The pavement is now breaking up. We have had this problem now for a very long time and I have reported it twice before.

  • We spoke today to Debbie who asked for photos as supplied above. This is our fourth attempt at reporting this problem which has existed for over 5 years. The drain down the road also appears to be blocked as the water flows all the way down to Southern Road. The pavement and road under the water is now breaking up. Makes difficult access to elderly man next door at 53.
