Blocked road drains

Reported via desktop in the Blocked - Flooding of Road/Path category by Edward Ginns at 13:26, Mon 13 November 2023

Sent to Northumberland County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5205522.

The road drains are blocked and not allowing rain water to flow away - this is causing floodwater to stand across the road and the verge. The drains need clearing out and washing through to remove the built up dirt and debris. I’ve been able to temporarily clear one of the drains (under the Chillingham sign) but it’s still full of debris. The one on the other side of the road is fully blocked. The standing water on the road is causing vehicles to swerve to the centre of the road. I’ve also reported a similar issue (ref 5148154) and it would make sense to link these together to resolve.
