  • Hi

    I’ve reported this twice, a week apart. In my second report, which I must have sent about a week ago, I said that the branch is under street lamp 34 which isn’t working. I went that way today and have taken photos. I attach a jpeg.

    It is very dangerous. I am very lucky not to have damaged my eye more seriously.

  • 13 November: I first reported this more than a month ago, and have updated my report three times now, twice at your request: yet nothing has been done either to cut back the vegetation or to fix the street lamp.
