Drain blocked

Reported via iOS in the Drains/Ditches Blocked category anonymously at 17:31, Friday 27 August 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 360918.

Drain blocked outside #20. This drain has never properly been cleaned for years as every time the flushing lorry has been to this drain they cannot open it to get the suction tube down and just pour water over it to look as if it has been flushed. Please ensure drain cover can be opened be a lorry comes to flush it.

  • Lorry came today & cleaned 3 other drains. The particular drain outside House # 20 is still totally blocked. I was out when they were going to try to clean this drain but obviously could not get slotted grille out to clear drain. Please provide update as to whether this problem is going to fixed by digging out old drain unit & fitting a NEW drain cover assembly. See photo taken 15.00 30/09/21 of drain still totally blocked.
