  • This was supposed to say 2 or 3 blocked drains - I believe there is a further drain under water in the puddle. This has been a problem for some years - pedestrians often getting soaked by passing vehicles. NOete also the road surface eroding around one of the drains.

  • 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. We will continue to monitor this on our routine inspections. Regards
