URGENT exposed wires on street light

Reported in the Street lighting category anonymously at 11:28, Sat 1 December 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 2 minutes later

The metal case has fallen off of the street lighting and exposed the wires. It was loose and landed on my daughter's foot causing pain at the time. She is fine but it needs to be properly fixed as if it had landed on a younger child it could have been serious.
