Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

A drain on the pavement is completely filled with silt, causing water to pool on the pavement outside 189 and run into the road, every time it rains. Has been reported previously (approximately 12 months ago) someone came, took a photo and also scooped out some silt by hand but no further action has taken and the problem persists.
