Sent to Lincolnshire County Council 5 minutes later. Council ref: 356390.

Yet again I find myself reporting this issue. This has been going on for over 12 months Contrary to your previous communication on this issue, no routine work has been carried out. Localised flooding occurs with every rain shower extending from Louth Fire Station to the Priory Hotel. I have notified my town and county councillor about your inaction. It is your obligation under the Highways Act to fix this
