LIGHTS: Failure is not acceptable

Why is it that there seems to be certain streets in the town where the street lights routinely fail?

Westfield Road, Lower Main Street, Dock Road and the Old Bridge and other areas are often in partial or full darkness.

This is becoming increasingly frequent and is not acceptable, especially at this time of year with dark nights and icy pavements adding to hazards, especially for old and vulnerable people.

Nobody deserves to end up falling victim to injury or crime as a result of penny-pinching by council chiefs or electric companies.
