Street light overgrown with ivy restricting light to small footpath

Reported in the Street lighting category anonymously at 14:51, Saturday 14 September 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 3 minutes later

This sreet light is the only lighting on this footpath and the lighting lamp housing is virtually covered with ivy. The lighting to the path is very poor and often the light stays on during the day as its sensor still thinks it's night time.I reported it about 3 mths ago to no avail.
