This has been a constant problem for some years, flaring up every so often but the problem is never fully fixed, there seems to be foul sewage from the drains and it has been like this for a few days now. Residents of 28-38 Yorkshire Close cannot leave their homes without having to navigate around and the smell is extremely bad

    Someone came out last night, but al they seemed to do was suck away the excess water, didn’t seem to be any attempt to actually fix the blockage - I’ve now woken up to this and the smell of drains and sewerage is awful, particularly in the communal hallway of our block, it’s disgusting. Can someone please be sent over to sort out and unblock the drains immediately
