ENGLAND flag on streetlight, overhanging private garden and detrimental to character and appearance of conservation area. World Cup ended weeks ago!

Reported in the Street Light Fault category anonymously at 17:09, Monday 6 August 2018 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 1 week, 1 day, 22 hours, 16 minutes later

Contrary to preserving and enhancing Bath Conservation Area. Flags were mounted without any notification to neighbours. If we were not English, this "flag in the face" could be seen as offensive. It should have been taken down when the Football World Cup ended.
