Street light not working

Reported in the Street cleaning category anonymously at 16:37, Thu 8 February 2018

Sent to West Oxfordshire District Council 4 months, 5 days, 17 hours, 18 minutes later. Council ref: 853769.

Street light No. 50 on the footpath outside No 178 Farmers Close is not working making the footpath very dark and dangerous. This is particularly problematic when it is icy or raining as a lot of algae makes the path slippery.
