Hello, Last week and the start of this week (start of Aug) there was extreme rainfall in SE London. Part of Queens Road suffered from significant flooding on the roads. Pavements were covered and water went into the shops across the road from us (in particular Metros Chicken Shop and almost reached the pharmacy. As a main thoroughfare for buses, ambulances, police and fire engines this is very dangerous for all of the residents here as well as those driving and pedestrians. I think the problem is blocked drains on both sides of the road. I'd be grateful if this could be looked into as it has been an ongoing issue for years apparently - according to neighbours. Thanks so much for your time. Best wishes, Helen
