  • Our contractors SSE have attended and found that lights numbers 2 and 4 are not working due to an underground cable fault. The utility company on site have been asked to open the ground for the repair to take place. SSE will be attending again tomorrow to inspect and carry out repair as required. You can check back her for further updates.
