Blocked Drain /Gully

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 12:06, Tuesday 18 May 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2733487.

The drain on the road outside the property on the red route, Stanstead Rd - has flooded due to excess water and blockage and caused the whole lower floor flat to flood. The bathroom, kitchen and hallway is all flooded with water. This is so dangerous. Also more bad weather is forecast so it can happen again and the water is just not going anywhere! You need to get someone out urgently to clear the water and sort the drain!
