Street Light has no cover

The street light outside number 8&10 Mendip Heights has no cover. Due to this the light is very bright and shines directly into the bedrooms.

  • Is it one of these new replacement LED lights ?

    At a guess it needs a light deflector fitting ?

    These LED street lights are causing much intense light pollution into peoples home, mine included!

    They just fit these lights to save money but don't take into consideration of how bright they are and that they light up peoples room at night, I complained about one light and the return email was ''Please close curtains''....Was utterly furious over this reply and demanded a light deflector be fitted, several days later I saw them fitting the deflector.
