Blocked drains on Riggindale Road (and elsewhere)
With all the rain, its not surprising that there are quite a few blocked drains around, creating a lot of surface water which is causing a hazard for pedestrians and damaging local pavements and roads.
We have been going around identifying and reporting them. This picture was one of the most major we found, on Riggindale Road near the junction with Mitcham Lane, with water covering most of the pavement and a large part of the road.
This has been reported to Lambeth Council (not Thames Water as drains in the gutters are the Council's responsibility).
