Block Drain across my driveway

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain: Blockage inside drain category anonymously at 16:48, Tuesday 26 October 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3086182.

As the photo clearly shows the drain is blocked on the highway and is coming into my property, water is going into my garage it also prevent us walking over the area With winter approaching this problem is only going to get worst. The water will freeze and also get heavier with the downpours of rain we are having. The water is coming down from the fields into the drains higher up the lane where there is no issue the only place that has the issue is here. I sent this report in on Friday to be told it is not an emergency, this water is still overflowing now when we have not had any rain, so it is an emergency as water is entering my property and causes us access issues. I would appreciate you assistance on this matter
