Trees blocking light from lamp post

Reported in the Street Lighting and Road Signs category anonymously at 07:42, Friday 28 August 2020 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

Woodbastwick rd is a dark rd at the best of times to walk down, but there are 3 trees surrounding this lamp post so hardly any light is getting through. I reported last year too, obviously this year the tress are bigger and blocking more light.Two are on the pavement beside the lamppost 1 is in the garden of no 70 Woodbastwick rd.All the trees need a good cut back to allow the light to shine and for it to be safe to walk in Woodbastwick Rd. Thank you
