Discovered 1 Sept 2019: streetlight no 10 outside 157 Thorney Leys, OX28 5NS. The access panel is loose enough to be lifted off - obvious electrical hazard. I've done a temporary fix with duct tape.

If there is a cable fault this will be passed to the Electricity company to repair and will take longer, it will depend on the resources which the District Service Operator has. Thank you

  • 09.10.19 - you've just sent me an email saying that this has been fixed. This is, quite simply, not the case. The panel is still held in place by the duct tape I used in the hope of preventing a significant H&S problem. There is live wiring behind the panel, and plenty of children live in this area.
