Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 08:55, Wed 18 August 2021
Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 403410.
The drain is full to brim of rubbish to the point where it no longer serves the purpose of draining the land during prolonged ofr excessive rainfall. Lumley Crescent has a footpath leading between number 35 and number 37 Lumley Crescent and the blocked drain is in the centre of it. The last time that the drains were cleaned the operator said he was unable to clear it because he did not have a long enough hose extension on his drain cleaning vehicle.
Other drains are also getting blocked again in the road of Lumley Crescent and all these blocked drain could result in a flooding issue from surface water.
Any hely in cleaning the drains, especially the fully blocked on on the footpath between Lumley Crescent and the access lane leading to Roman Bank at Skegness would be appreciated.

We are sorry that we are not taking immediate action with this report. Our records show that the drains in this area were cleaned in the last year and were running well. In times of extreme weather even the most efficient systems can become overwhelmed. If the problem recurs in less extreme conditions please report this again. Thank you for reporting this matter.
