The large double drain outside New Barn Farm

The large double drain has recently had the pothole around it redone. However, the drain itself is solidly blocked with silt (and was at the time of redoing). This results in the drain opposite backing up and water flooding around the low area of the double drain. This then throws cars into the middle of the road on a dangerous double bend. This is a very key drain to take the surface water running from the opposite field and Whitewood Farm entrance. Periodically locals clear these drains of surface leaves etc, but the double drain is fixed and cannot be unblocked by us.
Thank you for your report, it will be reviewed by the appropriate team.
