In this paper we deal with the heat equation with drift in $L_{d+1}$. Basically, we prove that, if the free term is in $L_q$ with high enough $q$, then the equation is uniquely solvable in a rather unusual class of functions such that $\partial_t u , D^2 u \in L_p$ with $p \lt d + 1$ and $D_u \in L_q$.
