Not just blocked - health risk. Invaded by fruit flies!

Reported in the Gully/Drainage category anonymously at 13:45, Fri 28 August 2020

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

The drain in the road is directly outside my house (122 Lower Cheltenham Place, BS6 5LE). The drain is close to full and my kitchen is filling up with fruit flies - really unhygenic and unpleasant. This is getting worse with the heavy rainfall we are experiencing.

  • This was originally reported in August. Fair play, we were - and are - in the midst of a pandemic but it's now the beginning of February 2021 and nothing has been done. Rainfall has been heavy, so it is very close to filling right up. This is a stagnant body of water, right outside my front door. Please ensure action.
