The street light outside no 5 The Dairyground has not been working properly for several weeks. Initially it worked some nights but not on others. It does not work at all now. It is very dark in the cul de sac without the light and pedestrians can hardly see when using the path leading to the culdesac from West Street

  • This light is still not working and the next street light is also out, making this area very dark now. A resident has fallen over the unlit curbside.
