  • This gully was inspected on Friday 21st August 2020, the gully was free from detritus and the water level in the gully pot was down below the outlet pipe. On lifting the Anglian Water near to number 34 we found this full of water thus preventing our gullies working as designed during heavy rainfall. we will report this to Anglian Water, however if this occurs in the meantime you can contact them on 03457 145 145 and ask the check their surface water sewers as they are surcharging.

    State changed to: No further action
