Frequeny Sewage smell on public road

Reported via mobile in the Other public drainage issue category anonymously at 12:53, Thu 5 November 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2372358.

The street smells of awful sewage. It doesn't seem to be there all the time but strong winds carry the smell. It seems to be between number 15 and 21 Cecil Road. This issue has been present for at least the last fornight. Can't smell anything specific from any particular drain but the smell lingers in the air and smells like rotten eggs/sewage.
