The road sign on A338 Newbury Street traffic lights approach in photo slipped to pedestrian level in storms in the spring. It has been pushed into the wall since then to avoid people walking into it. This morning it had been pushed out across the pavement (prank?). I pushed it back against the wall and took photos attached.

Council ref: ENQ20871123

  • One street light in our parking bay (number 12) Smiths Wharf isn’t working and it’s incredibly dark at night for a woman on her own.
