Dangerous flooding on blind corner caused by drainage failure.

Reported in the Blocked drain category by Paul Williams at 11:17, Thursday 18 June 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

I am fully aware From the “FixMyStreet” website that other local residents have also advised of this dangerous problem, which following last nights small amounts t of rain is straddling the road. The standard response detailed in the “Our Highways Inspection Policy” does not answer my question relating to the timeframe in which action will be taken. I trust that based on the danger to life from an accident occurring that this will fall under Category 1 with a fix within 2 days and permanent action within 28 days, can you kindly confirm the category which has been applied based on the evidence you have received to date?
