Clear these leaves to end flood­ing threat

Bath Chronicle - - OPINION -

I at­tach pho­tos of re­ally ter­ri­ble flood­ing caused by heavy rain af­ter drains blocked by fallen leaves which the coun­cil never col­lect, see above. I took the pho­tos at the bot­tom of the junc­tion of Pul­teney Road and Lime Grove, I have al­ready alerted the coun­cil to this prob­lem af­ter the last heavy rain about two weeks ago. They said it had been fixed. Not so! This never used to hap­pen when the gut­ters were reg­u­larly swept by a man with a broom. Now, there is only very oc­ca­sional au­to­matic sweep­ing by elec­tric ma­chines which are to­tally use­less and leave more de­bris than they col­lect and can­not deal with the gut­ters where cars park over the leaves which can then never blow away.
