Drains blocked with leaves, berries and silt.

Reported via mobile in the Blocked rainwater gulleys category anonymously at 16:06, Mon 8 November 2021

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 3111621.

The drains are not being maintained and they are continually blocked with leaves and silt. As a result they do not effectively carry away rainwater which in turn results in huge puddles as soon as there is any rainfall be it significant or otherwise.
