  • Light has just started flashing again. Penetrates through our curtains. Possibly dangerous for anyone who has light sensitivity or epilepsy. Issue not resolved this evening.

  • Unfortunately this site does not allow me to upload a video. This is affecting people’s health in the street. I contacted the emergency nr as well, but no result unfortunately and can possibly only be sorted during daylight hours and not weekend. Shame that this has been reported since Monday- 5 working days with no result. Poorly done Bromley!!

  • The faulty light is extremely annoying and intrusive. My bedroom is at the front of the house and I have been unable to sleep restfully for several nights. Please fix as soon as possible.

  • The light starts to flash as soon as the street lights go on at 20:20/30. Is there any kind of update on this problem being fixed. Even turned off would be better.
