Reported via desktop in the Drains/Ditches Blocked category anonymously at 10:23, Monday 24 June 2024

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 408411.

The drain at the bottom of the drainpipe overflows into my property making the wall wet. This is seeping up the wall turning it black . This is because the pipe under the pavement is blocked with debris so rainfall from the gutter is building up instead of draining away. Private contractors that I've asked to help repeatedly tell me it's the councils responsibility to clear it. They do not want to incur expenses if damage to the public drain is the cause or is incurred. Please help.
