Drivers have been caught on camera in this situation at least three times this week.

The council said it will return once the water level has dropped sufficiently to flush the system and investigate the issue.

Readers previously told The Lincolnite they have been pushing the parish and county council to fix drainage issues on the road for more than five years.
