  • Many thanks for the report and for bringing this outage to our attention. I have attached a map from our system , unfortunately we havent got F4 and F5 logged. I wanted to check if it could be a numbering error , if you could check our map that would be fantastic, if there is an F4 and F5 aswell as the 3 shown we will send an inspector out to get these added. Appeciate any help with this location

  • Hi, thank you for the map. Yes, there are 2 more lamp posts after F3 - I couldn’t find a number on either of them but thought they would be F4&5 as the others were F1-3 If you require photos I will take some and send to you

  • Many thanks again for sending this through, for some reason these have never been added to our system but by the looks of it should haave been. I will get these added and also arranged to be numbered correctly and repaired. Thanks again
