The drain is full of cans, sweet wrappers, crisps packets, mud, stones, etc. And now plants are growing out of it. If there is torrential running rain, it would end up in my garden.

  • 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
