Blocked drain opposite playpark

Reported fixed on 19 Jan: report/ 2449088

Following heavy rainfall last night the same drain remains blocked this evening with water not draining into it and instead running down the road to the next drain. (Poor photo in the dark, but shows pooled water above the surface of the drain grating)

Original report:

The drain opposite the playpark at the school and on the corner of the road to the allotments is blocked (north side of road, drain at the bottom of the photo). Water in the drain piping is reaching this drain then overflowing and running down the road to the next drain (easterly direction, top of photo) following heavy rain where it goes back into the piping (this occurs for days after the rain). Assume there is a blockage in the pipework between the two drains. This is a recurrent problem.
