Drain cover blocked with debris and fallen palm leaves

Reported via desktop in the Blocked rainwater gulleys category anonymously at 10:48, Sunday 28 March 2021

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 2638078.

There are always palm leaves gathering in the road which block the drain cover. In addition the road sweeper just drives down the centre of the road and never cleans the gutter due to parked cars. This has been continuing over 3 years or more. Tried to clean outside house with hose pipe but debris just caused a flood in the road and gutter. There is now a trench of rotting debris along the side of the road and neighbours have reported seeing rats.
