  • This is still a problem that needs to be fixed. There is a small stream with should enter the storm drains . There is a manhole cover at the end of the stream which I assume should take the flow. This appears to be blocked and so does the storm drain directly in front of the manhole and has standing water over it. At present the water runs along the road to the next storm drain some 100m away. During periods of heavy rain this cannot cope and the water runs all the way to the junction of Manor Lane and Ashwell road. This has caused erosion at the side of the tarmac and added to the recent flooding in the village. Can we please get the lorry with the suction hose to clear the drain in front of the manhole cover?

  • This drain has collapsed. Reported in June 2023 and no action taken. The result is complete erosion of the road downstream of the drain due to excessive and unnecessary surface water.
