Drain on cycle path blocked, water overflowing onto path

Reported via mobile in the Blocked drain: Blockage inside drain category anonymously at 10:55, Tue 13 October 2020

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2338424.

Drain next to two tunnels cycle path is blocked with water now flooding the path- potentially risky to all path users. It’s the drain as you come down the ramp from the bridge between Egerton road and maple grove, or when accessing the cycle path from near the top of cotswold road. Wasn’t there yesterday afternoon. Appears to be a blockage inside the drain as well as leaves partly blocking the outside.
