Rain water drain ineffective

Reported via desktop in the Drain blocked category by Richard Bailey at 11:19, Thu 13 July 2023

Sent to Shropshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 14118414.

This drain is not blocked but is not able to effectively trap rain water due to its position I.e. not in gutter or base of camber. During periods of heavy rain water is being diverted down Mill Road causing flooding in Abbey Wharf. Existing drains in Mill Road/Abbey Wharf are not designed to cope with drainage from Abbey Foregate. Could the drain in attached photo be repositioned to be more effective.
