Drain is blocked/unable to cope with floods after heavy rain

Reported in the Gully/Drainage category anonymously at 13:34, Wednesday 8 May 2019

Sent to Bristol City Council 1 hour, 21 minutes later

Every time it rains heavily the drain is unable to cope with the volume of water and floods towards our house and our neighbours. The photo was taken after only approx 5-10 mins of heavy rain and the flood is coming through the gate, so concerned that if it rains heavily for longer the house will get flooded. I go out and move any blockages as best I can with a broom (dead leaves etc), but it seems like the drain just can't cope with the amount of runoff coming from the rest of the road when there is heavy rain.
