I don’t know how many times we need to report this for anything to be done, it’s increasingly frustrating! The drain near the bus stop opposite Didi & Frank on Kennington road is still blocked and has been for about a year. Whenever it rains, significant floods occur which are dangerous for pedestrians, cars, cyclists and buses. The pics show the current state, it won’t be long before the houses are affected. Please stop marking as fixed when you haven’t done anything, it’s irresponsible!
