Although I am not the original reporter, I can confirm that this light has not been working for 2-3 months at least. It is causing a safety hazard to pedestrians trying to cross The Paddock and to vehicles entering The Paddock as there are usually cars parked on the road. I would urge that road safety issues should be regarded as a priority.
