Street lights not working

Reported anonymously at 09:45, Saturday 6 August 2022

We have lived here for many decades and, in the past, whenever a street light goes out we have reported it to the parish council (Sheering) and it has been fixed fairly quickly. At the beginning of the pandemic we reported that two of the lights were out (there are only three) and the PC said it was nothing to do with them. The district council (Epping Forest) and the county council (Essex) have also said the same. All three say that they are not responsible! So it is obvious that one of them is denying its responsibility.
