Hi, as you can see the lamp outside my house is very close and it is affecting my sleep. I have a blind and curtains and yet can still see inside my house clearly at night. I’ve been told that a shield can be added to the lamp. Please could this be investigated as soon as possible? Many thanks, Jo Davis
