Massive flood, pedestrians soaked by passing cars.ignoring leaf collections caused this

Reported in the Flooding category anonymously at 19:55, Wednesday 13 November 2019

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

For years, flooding in apsley road had been reported.

Finally this year the drain was cheated and everything had been fine

Yesterday you said you would clear Apsley Road of leaves while you're doing your weekly St John's Road cleanup, but you lied. Clearly.

Consequently tonight, as the small numbers of leaves were not picked up (they were even swept up into a pile by a neighbour to make it easier for Bristol Waste to collect) the drain has blocked and flooding has returned.

Pedestrians are being soaked by passing cars

Please clear the drains as you're clearly not interested in clearing the leaves.
