  • Thanks Dave - unfortunately the same lights are out again so I fear the fuse has gone again. Perhaps a bigger problem?

  • Two of the three lights remain out of order, nearly 4 months now! The third one originally reported, the most westerly one of the south parapet, is working - but the other two out of order leaves a very dark unsavoury area on the pavement. Please fix them asap.
