Drainage ditches blocked.

Following some extensive cutting back of scrub along the top of the ditches last week, the drainage ditches are now full to the top with hedge cuttings and tree branches, which have in turned blocked up the ditches and after all this rain/snow we've had and still forecast with more to come, it has caused flooding across the road and into a business premises. It must have been bad as the road was closed. Please arrange for a team to remove and take away the cuttings and to find and unblock the outlets so that this doesn't happen again. ALSO, a road sweeper is required as there is a lot of stone debris on the road as a result of the flooding, very dangerous, stones flicking up at windscreens or reduced braking on approach to the junction, accident!
