The end of the drain is completely overgrown

Reported anonymously at 10:09, Sat 19 June 2021

There is a drain running alongside the footpath. Over the years it has been allowed to become overgrown. At the end of the drain there is a wall and a metal grid to stop debris from clogging up the drain. Some time ago, over a year, there were som metal and plastic barriers put around it. Now even the barriers are being overtaken by the bushes etc. It is unsightly but, more concerning it will be blocking the drain and could potentially cause serious flooding in heavy rain. The gully and drain are there for a reason. Please look at this to assess ASAP and arrange for it to be restored to how it should be. Thank you.
