Blocked drainage ditch - causing flooding of our home

Reported via mobile in the Flooding/drainage (NH) category anonymously at 18:08, Tuesday 5 March 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5673241.

The drainage ditch on the west bound carriage way just before the Emery Down turning is completely blocked with silt. Which is causing all of the run off water to pour down hill to our front door and into our kitchen and through our walls. The original pathway for the ditch to drain into has become blocked and needs digging out, which would solve all these issues. Flooding has been constant for the last few years, but this year due to the weather has actually come into our home.
