Flooding of close every time we have heavy shower

Reported via desktop in the Drains/Ditches Blocked category anonymously at 09:30, Sunday 1 August 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 359997.

Every time we have heavy rain the entire close floods. This is getting worse as each month goes by. It was originally just the drains that couldn't cope but last night the sewer blocked as well resulting in raw sewage spilling out all over the road. The flooding has now got so bad that some of the houses are at serious risk of flooding.
