Drain is unable to take the amount of water from the surrounding area

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 12:16, Mon 17 August 2020

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 375014.

The whole area of paving outside the bus station catches the rain and directs it all down to one drain. This drain is not large enough to withstand the amount of surface water so it then puddles and overflows down Sincil Street causing water damage to the stores. This has been an ongoing issue for a number of years now.
