Blocked drain on Witham Street.

Reported via mobile in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 11:28, Tue 13 December 2022

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 439960.

Many thanks for the recent reply regarding this blocked drain on Witham Street outside the Q&M shop and informing me that this drain was cleaned on the last schedule and not due to be cleaned until next time also I should include a picture of the drain in my next report which is what I am doing. I know that this drain hasn't been cleaned on the last cleaning schedule because I have been trying to report it for the last 18 months and has never been cleaned as you can see in the picture I've attached water is around the metal grate and during last summer the water did manage to drain away eventually and you could see the sludge what was causing the blockage so this drain DOES need cleaning ASAP.
