  • The road gullies have been checked and cleansed where necessary, no issues were found, therefore this may well have been down to the Anglian Water surface water sewer being at capacity, this preventing our gullies working, however once the roan stops the surface water sewers empty enabling our rad gullies to work again and drain the road Should this reoccur we recommend contacting Anglian Water on 03457 145 145 and ask they inspect their surface water sewer.
