Last night we had no streetlights in our cul de sac, and in the street leading up to it, so it was very very dark outside. Mum couldn't even take the recycling out, as she was worried she would trip and fall down the steps, even with a torch.
She emailed the council, and they said they would talk to the lighting people, who came around within an hour. However she said, she thinks they just changed the lightbulb outside our house. So mum is wondering what will happen tonight, especially as she is on call. She has got her torch ready, in case she has to go out.
