Drain/ Gully Blockages- Castleton Avenue- Footpath 32

Reported via mobile in the Blocked rainwater gulleys category anonymously at 13:52, Thursday 20 July 2023

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 4808132.

There are 4 drains/ gullys down footpath 32 - Castleton Avenue, Barnehurst Kent DA7 6QT that are fully blocked with rubbish, debris and absolutely smell disgusting! There was a dead rat down the footpath a few months ago also, we have seen rats going in and out of these drains in the late evening when cutting through this path to visit family on Beechcroft Avenue. Neighbours directly next to the footpath have also had rats coming into their gardens from the foothpath/ under the fencing. The drains need to be cleaned from blockages, sanitised and the rat problem dealt with also please. Many thanks.
