Flooding garden from rainwater manhole

Hello, We have 2 manhole covers in our back garden. The one for sewerage is fine. The one for rainwater keeps blocking up and when it rains it floods into our garden. The manhole connects the pipe running both sides of our house. I have used my own 10 metre drain rods in both directions so I know the blockage is not in our garden. Can you please ask someone to check further down the pipe to find the blockage. We contacted Wessex Water, their engineer confirmed there is a blockage further down the pipe and that they think BCC are responsible. Thanks Nick and Roni Dyer 79 Saltmarsh Drive. BS11 0NL
