'Traffic light ahead' has detached from its frame (attached by one corner) and presents a hazard to cyclists in particular.

'Traffic light ahead' sign is only attached by bottom right corner and is therefore hanging off the dark metal frame in a potentially extremely hazardous way. On the 21st November, this exact sign (in this broken state) caused my girlfriend to go over her handlebars and break her collarbone and I would not like a similar accident to happen to anyone else. In addition to the sharp edge of the sign facing oncoming traffic, the sign is unlit. and is obstructing the cycle lane. I have temporarily fixed the sign and moved it out of the cycle lane as much as possible, but I am concerned that the strong winds forecast will cause it to happen again..
