Street drains full of leaves and stagnant water

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 10:55, Saturday 20 April 2019

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council 5 minutes later. Council ref: 350370.

Street drains around junction of North End Road and Northfield Close, Tetney, are full of rotting leaves and stagnant water. The smell has been seeping into my house through air bricks and window vents. Took me a couple of weeks to discount any problem with my drains (all clean and clear) and identify the source as being the street drains near my house. See attached photos of those that I can see down - others have different covers I can't see down.
