Street light not been working for months here. My elderly mother fell over recently whilst dog walking, as it is pitch black in the evening. Considering legal action unless fixed promptly.

  • Thank you for your report, I hope your mother is not hurt. This was a supply fault that was with Scottish and Southern Energy to repair, they have notified us works have been carried out so we have requested our contractor attend to check this is the case and repair the unit.

    State changed to: Action scheduled
