Councillor calls for safety check on street lights


June 2nd 2017

Boultham County Councillor Kev Clarke is calling for street light columns on Lincoln high street to be checked in fear of safety, following an incident witnessed by Councillor Clarke on Saturday afternoon where part of the street lamp fell to the ground.Councillor Clarke explains “I was in the paved area of the High Street discussing issues with a resident of Boultham when we heard a crashing noise. Standing only a matter of feet away from the column; I looked towards the direction we had heard the noise and there was a section of the light fitment on the ground.”

Councillor Clarke continued “the fitment would have acted like a spear, so thankfully no one was directly underneath the light at the time. However, I feel the County Council needs to carry out an urgent safety review.”
