  • Hi, thanks for your report. Is it possible for you to tell us the closest property to this lamp, and if it has a number painted on it? Otherwise we can't identify and can't report to our contractor SSE lighting. Thanks very much for your help,

  • Hi and thanks for replying so quickly. The only number I can see on the lamp is a 4. It is outside of number 20. I made another report as a different lamp is flickering and not always working. Tonight is is also off completely and is outside of number 26. Many thanks, Tomi

  • Thanks for your further report, I have identified which lights they are according to our list and have forwarded the fault report to our contractor SSE Lighting. Simple faults are usually fixed within a matter of days (sometimes taking a bit longer at the moment due to coronavirus) but more complex repairs (such as faults with the mains supply) can take up to a month (according to the contract).
