Recurring blocked drain flooding the road on a blind bend

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 19:55, Saturday 27 June 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Massive recurring drain blockage on the Forty Green Road. Has been an issue for a number of years but has become much worse. It is extremely dangerous as it is on a blind bend and cars pass around the water on the wrong side of the road. It is an accident waiting to happen Iā€™m afraid
