I am contacting you from Leicestershire County Council Highways Drainage. We have cleared our ditch on our boundary but the customer is experiencing flooding coming from the Highways England part of the ditch which is obstructed and needs digging out. We are unable to gain access due to fencing and a bridge. During heavy rainfall customer suffered flooding to garage and animal shelters. It is a repeat issue. Customer has contacted you previously. Please could this be looked into as a matter of urgency. Reference for this issue is HMS 848908. Contact Donna Ball, Senior Technician with outcome.
