The concrete base holding up street light 13 outside 28 Merewood Avenue in Oxford has cometely split. The street light can be shaken by hand. It is currently leaning and there is a real possibility that this will eventually fall. My car and house number 30 Merewood Avenue are at risk if this happens.
