Drains blocked due to over grown tree.

Reported via mobile in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 18:49, Saturday 2 October 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 406394.

The tree must be cut back to resolve this ongoing problem. It's quite simple really. If you cut back the tree's problem solved. You can see in the picture, I have tried my best to remove leaves and other various objects falling from the tree into the drain however a drains person will need to unblock the drains as this is the councils responsibility not mine. I fear the water will build up leading into winter and gush through and into our properties.

Many thanks.
