Hazard Type Other
Hazard Description Blocked drain. The council have been to pump it out but the huge puddle re-forms when it rains, and freezes to ice when cold. Dangerous especially for old people going to or from the bus stop a few yards away. We think it likely that the underground pipes have been broken by the tree roots, as we know from a survey that the roots have extended under the adjacent house and are causing cracking in the walls - the insurance company has reported this to the council.
