  • Still open, via questionnaire, 21:06, Thu 14 April 2016

  • The drain is still blocked despite Severn Trent fixing the leak in the road ( for a third time ) which is adjacent to the blocked drain. I am NOT amused !!! I will ring Andy Roose (?) at WCC again tomorrow as this problem, which is on a WCC highway, needs to be fixed !!!!!!!

  • The problem was fixed SIX weeks after my complaint! ( I believe others had also complained ). It appears that WCC were reluctant to get the work done as it was Severn Trent who had caused the problem, and WCC were waiting until ST got it sorted. I do not think that WCC would have done anything at all if I had not hounded them every other day when NOTHING was being done! ST did eventually come and clear the drain.
