Four drains blocked in close proxomity.

Reported via desktop in the The drain is blocked category by David Cox at 09:29, Wednesday 8 May 2024

Sent to Gloucestershire County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5944759.

There are two blocked drains one outside Pear Tree Cottage, at the bottom of Shears Ptich, and a further blocked drain outside Radnor Cottage. These are in are in addition to the two blocked drains along the road. There are four drains blocked, which together caused flooding by Milton Rill and Fountain House. Debris has been washed down the footpath adjacent to Pear Tree Cottage, and there is considerable debris on the road. Any further heavy rain will cause flooding to block the road again, and increase flood flow to town centre
