Blocked drain causing severe flooding from road surface

Reported via desktop in the Drainage category anonymously at 16:33, Tuesday 24 August 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

I previously reported this issue - highways /CC marked drains in yellow. It appears they have today cleaned the wrong drain - the drain outside Rockley Cottages has been emptied but the drain outside Rockley End which is the one in question causing the flooding has not . I have today received email saying fixed but it is clearly not been emptied. Picture attached. Not only does in need emptying but the outlet pipe needs attention. If this could be sorted before the next heavy rain forecast it would be much appreciated Regards
