Surface water drain flowing water out not in

Reported via desktop in the Other public drainage issue category anonymously at 15:06, Sunday 18 July 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2872873.

We have a surface water drain which for 17 years has worked fine and has been recently jetted to ensure its clear after building works. However during the recent heavy rainfall we witnessed that flow was coming out of the drain instead of in, all over the driveway. Could someone please investigate down stream issues and the source of the problem.
