Came home just after midnight last night, 25 December 2017, to find streetlight 2A on Rooks Lane gone out yet again. This is the third year in a row that it has broken (or started going on and off at wrong times) over the Christmas period and is extremely dangerous as the path becomes pitch black with slipping and tripping hazards and is the only access to 8 properties, including several with elderly residents. It's an accident waiting to happen and took 4-5 months until it was fixed last time... PLEASE fix it more quickly this time!
