Sewage coming through a crack on road

This is a recurring problem. There is sewage rising through the crown of the road on Main Street, at the junction with St Andrews close. It suggests that there is once again a blockage under the newly fitted manhole cover. The last time it was checked and cleared a camera was used to check everything out. The workmen said that the camera only got a little way across the road and came against what appeared to be a water pipe…….from when the main was renewed perhaps? There are children from the school crossing the road in this area and it is close to our village shop. It is smelly now and the weather is due to get hotter. Please help.

There is no sewerage coming through the road at the moment, probably because it is not raining. This chiefly happens at peak flow in the drainage system.I believe from a brief conversation with a camera operative checking out the sewer problem previously, that the top of the sewer pipe might have been breached when the water main was replaced. See previous message. Since this part of the main not only services the immediate neighbours, but by report also drains from Lammas cottages on the Oakham road, any water ingress due to storms causes a welling up in the road centre. Please inform us of the options on this problem, which I suspect will not be cured until the other issues are addressed.
