Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 4164201.

Flooding icoming the highwy in front of the property. There is a drain adjacent to his drive. He rang up a month ago to explain when it rains the whole road is flooded. Itis an ongoing issue. A torrent of water came in last nighafter teh heavy rain at 20:30. It only took 15 minutes to happen and was centimeters from entering the house. They have poured 20 wheel barrows of water in the main sewer drain with assistance from other garden items The slope of the drive and the landscape of th road combined with neighbouring properties drives channels the water to the callers property and can change rapidly as a result. At the moment the water is enough to cover the road outside the property from side to side. It is potentially causing an issue for cars. The caller ideallywould like 15 sandbags to block his drive and prevent this happening. Last night the water on his drive got so deep he could not of opened his car door without water entering his car. The caller has recorded evidence of what has happened. In the past trucks have had to come and empty the drain. The caller said that it would take very little to flood the property oday and he felt that the property was at risk. They were unsure they could divert it successfully again.
