  • The photograph provided by unknown person has nothing to do with complaint of blocked drain. The leak in photo is a separate issue being dealt with by Bristol waterwork. They need council permission to cut tree down so that they can get to the leak.

  • The water is now above level of drain cover in gutter. When are you going to clear drain? With heavy rain forecast for Wed 30th Sept. Water will be forming a mini lake out into the road. Very dangerous. I hope Bristol council insurance dept is ready for accident claims.

  • As and when the drain is cleared it will not solve the problem as the next down the road is also blocked and water is over spilling into Springleaze

  • How long does it take to unblock a drain. You notified me 9th Oct that the job had been given to your contractors. I am still waiting for a miracle to happen. With the heavy rain this week, the road outside my house has been like a boating lake.

  • Help. SOS. Send for the life boats. There is so much water outside my house that I need a life boat. Why is it taking so long to fix a simple task of unblocking a drain?
