Drain silted

Reported via mobile in the Blocked Drain category anonymously at 21:52, Fri 12 August 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3750666.

This drain has lots of silt around and inside it on the lower side of the Acer Road parking area.

In event of heavy rain after current hot weather this and neighbouring drains could become overwhelmed and flood due to silt blockages.

Please could they be cleaned out
