Street Light not working for over one year

Reported via iOS in the Street lighting category by Bernard Connolly at 21:12, Sun 16 December 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 2 minutes later

The street light mounted on the side of the Post Office Vaults building on the Wallingford Street side was reported defective over a year ago. Since then it has not been fixed and would appear that the cable feeding the lamp has been disconnected from the junction box located above the rear of the building by Kitchen/Bathroom shop. This is a non standard street light , but is an essential part of the street lighting in the centre of Wantage. Pleas update me with progress in resolving this matter.
