Reported via desktop in the Drains/Ditches Blocked category anonymously at 15:55, Tuesday 18 May 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 356329.

4 drains along this section of road are blocked with mud, sticks and grass. The water drains off the side of the road next to the woods and brings all the debris with it. It is starting to flood the bottom of the road when there is heavy rain, and we are worried about the damage it will do to the buildings, should it flood.

  • Due to the heavy rain we have had today, the drains are not doing their job and there is a building at risk of flooding. If the drains aren't cleared asap, then you may hear from me again with an insurance claim, as there will be flood damage.
