Drains misery

We have lived on Bridge End Road for a few months and each time it rains the drains become blocked.

The drains in question are outside the gates to the properties at the Swallows Mill, and further along the road into town, more or less opposite the junction of Bridge End Road and Harrowby Road.

The flooding was so bad on Sunday morning a lot of the cars could not drive through the water and had to encroach on to the other side of the road, a bit too near the oncoming traffic coming from town over the bridge for comfort.

Surely something can be done to divert all this water into the river at Swallows Mill?
