Street light not working again - cover hanging off

This light, reported not working over a year ago (https://www.fixmystreet.com/ report/ 1124075) is STILL not working. The cover is now hanging off above the footpath. So now, we pedestrians who have had to walk this path for over a year with this light not working (not pleasant in the dark and rain next to a very busty road) now have the risk of a lamp cover falling on us. What does it take to get this light fixed properly ???

The lamp cover has been removed to make it safe, but the light was not fixed at the same time ????? Why not do the whole thing in one go, or is that too obvious ?
