  • Heavy rain again this morning Tuesday 10th August 2021. Drain overflowiing again and flooding the street. This was first reported to Anglian Water on Monday 2nd August. Who sent Metro Rod on Wednesday evening at 8.30pm - did nothing! and told me to report it to Highways Maintenance. Which I did on Thursday 5th August and given reference no.4165285. After torrential rain on Saturday contacted Anglian Water again who sent out IJWS yesterday 9th August. Inspected drain and reported that it is blocked and needs attention. I feel as though I am not getting anywhere with this problem and everyone is passing the problem onto someone else. I may just add that I am 76 years old and live on my own, I need some help to get this problem sorted. The overflowing drain is causing flooding down Chapel Lane on a daily basis,
