Sent to Rutland County Council less than a minute later

The drains have had standing water in and not draining for a couple of years but they now smell, especially the one in the corner between 2 properties and is especially fowl in the warmer weather to the point of making it unpleasant to use the garden. Also the properties have very sloped gardens and these drains are at the top and are essential to drain water away from building up lower down at the properties back doors.
