Horrific smell emitting from road drain permanently, sometimes overflows, directly outside our house and can even smell it inside the house.

There is a street drain on the road, near the curb which really stinks! It is not an average drain smell and we have inspected all other drains on the street and the problem seems to be isolated to this one drain. It has been consistent since we moved in over a month ago. The smell permeates to inside our property it is that strong. It also sometimes backs up and overflows. It smells like something may have died under there or raw sewage. We'd be so grateful if you could come and inspect as its actually very oppressive to live near. Many thanks, Jo
