  • Still not unblocked. New photo shows drain flooded. Pedestrians are at risk of getting drenched by passing cars as this part of the road is narrow when a car is parked opposite.

  • The drain is still blocked. Recent rain flowed straight over this drain and on to the next, creating a huge puddle. Motorists swerve to avoid the puddle and pedestrians are very cautious about walking past in case a car splashes them. The drain has been like this for years. This problem was reported six months ago.
