Street light not turning on.

The lightbulb has gone, it's flashing a very dim red colour, like it's trying to turn on. It's half-way down the street on the corner. Been like it for two days.

Please note that this fault leaves the location in almost total darkness as this is a rural location. Children do tend still to play on the corner concerned - even after dark - and so it would be very much appreciated if a repair could be prioritised.
