Back to all reports

My house is in complete darkness after midnight and is too dangerous to leave the house as I am disabled with mobility problems. I also want to say of the dangers caused from boy racers at 70 mph on an hourly basis and its scary.

Police said that they would send someone up in an hour. Whats the point. We need something done before someone is killed.

  • My house is a target for burgulars as I'm in complete darkness. i am very disabled and cant see a thing. Maybe I will fall over and sue you, if that what it takes to get a lamp post lit. Thanks council. Light up your offices 24 hour a day but not the people who pay your wages, disgraceful. And to the boy racers who come up hourly at 60 mph or more and turn on to a main road without looking, either 2,3, or 4 cars trailing each other putting lives at risk, where the **** are the police. I phoned them up last year and they said that they would send someone up in a couple of hours. Whats the point. Do you want the public to deal with it and put a put nails on the ground because all the cops are in Mcdonalds. When everyone;s tucked up in bed take a drive to your nearest Mcdonalds ,especially Shaftsbury, 3 maybe 4 cars stuffing their faces. I live in a first world country with third world support. You're a disgrace, absolute disgrace.
