Drain completely blocked causing flooding

Reported via mobile in the Flooding/Gully/Drainage category anonymously at 14:43, Wed 8 March 2023

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4292585.

The drain has been blocked for a few months and every time it rains, even a small amount, the road and much of the parallel pavement flood. It’s snowing today which has also caused a flood. I looked when it was dry and there is debris up to the top of the drain cover. It’s is on Downend Road, Fishponds outside the new estate called Birchwood Close, BS16 5BJ
