Drainage system near the bottom of Longwood Lane is silted up

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain: Blockage inside drain category anonymously at 13:52, Wed 28 October 2020

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2361028.

The drains have been blocked for several weeks now. If this situation persists the water pouring down the lane may undermine or damage the road surface, particularly when the frosty weather starts and the lane becomes a skating rink.
