A fast flowing flooded drain is causing havoc on Maldon high street.

The drain, outside EKO Toys, floods every time there is a storm.

Karlene Smith, 19, of Victoria Road, works at EKO Toys.

She said: “Customers can’t get to our shop because the drain is in front of it.

“We have people complaining about it, but we can’t really do anything.

“I have reported it to the council four or five times but they just come and put down tarmac each time and don’t fix the drain."
