Street light falling apart, not working & dangerous

Reported via desktop in the Street lighting category anonymously at 14:17, Tue 19 January 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Street light 28 (the number is not visible but the location of the pin is correct) is in a dangerous condition. This is another one of the street lights where the contractors have secured the light with STICKY TAPE. The rain has got in, the tape has fallen off and now the light is now in a DANGEROUS condition with it's cover ready to fall down and hurt somebody. Please can you look at this as a priority to avoid somebody getting hurt
