  • The drain is still blocked (and the puddle still there) and requires unblocking, but the water is not the cause of the smell.

  • Drain still blocked and large puddle still there. This is the access point to Nichols Court for people who use a wheelchair (because of the dropped kerb), making it impossible for them to access the building from this side.
