One street light out, another with cover open

One street light in Wessex Road does not work. It is mounted on an electricity pole and has number 7 on it. It is outside house no. 58.
The adjacent light, number 6, has the cover over its wiring wide open. As it is mounted high up on the pole, this is unlikely to be an immediate danger to the public, but it does mean the wiring is exposed to the elements, which may cause damage.
Thank you for contacting Oxfordshire County Council Street lighting, unfortunately we are currently only available to respond to emergency situations which may have an impact on the health and safety of members of the public, these will be dealt with within a 24 hour period.
Reported faults will continue to be registered on our management system and these will be tackled in coming months.
Ref: 346863 Thank you for your report; we have logged this as a fault on our management system. Our current policy is for our contractor to attend electrical & structural emergencies as a priority; these will be attended within a 24hr period. All other faults are logged on our management system, for efficiency, these are grouped by area and the date they were reported, and the contractor attends against a programmed of works based on this approach.
