Storm drains blocked outside 308 Blackfen road

Reported via mobile in the Flooding in the road category by Mark Raines at 19:01, Saturday 8 January 2022

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 3225663.

Storm drains blocked as you exit Gwilliam close onto Blackfen road. The drains are also blocked directly outside 308 and 302 Blackfen Road. This was originally reported on the 22nd October and still has not been resolved.My house was completely flooded on the 21st October and every time there is a heavy downpour my house is at serious risk of being flooded. The blocked drains are hazardous to my families health and safety due to possible risk of electrical fires or a gas explosion in my house. I have contacted the department responsible for the drain maintenance on numerous occasions but nothing has is been done to resolve the problem. This is also having affect on our mental health. I am now seeing this as total lack of duty of care to myself and my family.
