Reported in the Flooding category anonymously at 08:39, Thursday 13 February 2020

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 366758.

Everytime it rains heavy we get flooded outside the house significantly. Cones have been put on the road as without these I can't get in or out the house with out cars driving past and covering me in water. I was so badly covered with water from a car the other day I had to have a shower and clean clothes. Without the cones so much water is sprayed at our doors it comes through ours and next doors letter box! Next door is a hair salon and also needs full access for clients to go on and out. Please can someone be send out to access the situation and empty the full/ blocked drain. Kind regards Chris Chambers

  • Within 5/10 minutes of it raining this is the extent of the flooding outside our house and the the ones either side. Please can someone come to investigate ASAP. The only access in to these property's is through the front door. We have put cones outside the house and hair salon so we are able to get out the house, as with out these cars go through the water at 30mph. Kind regards.

  • Desperately need someone to investigate in to why the water isn't draining away. Cones are outside the house and hair salon next door to help people get in and out of the property's with out being drenched with water by people driving by. Please send someone ASAP! Kind regards.

  • Water is still covering the road. This is the main high Street in Wainfleet and is a busy road. It's very dangerous for oncoming traffic. Clients trying to access the hair salon are compromised, as are we getting in to our home. It's causeing flooding on the path which makes it difficult for people to walk round. I was advised someone would be round within two weeks. No one has been to investigate! It's been nearly 4 weeks ago when I first contact you. Please can someone be sent out asap! Urgent attention is needed please. Kind regards.
