This drain has been continuously blocked for several months outside 17 Belle Vue Road, Henley. The large area of water never drains very much as you can see from the series of photos. This road has no pavement, the grass verge is very muddy so pedestrians,including young children are forced into the middle of the road which I’m sure you’ll agree is very dangerous.

Thank you for reporting this issue. The gully issue/blockage will be included in our forthcoming gully cleansing programme. As there is a limited budget, we have to prioritise high flood risk areas. Sometimes it is the volume of water that falls, and our drains are unable to cope, but the water eventually disperses. If you feel your property is at risk, please contact the emergency services or contact our call centre on 0345 310 11 11 to request sandbags. We will continue to monitor this on our routine inspections. Regards
