Lamp posts on the footpath between Hennerton Way and Roebuck Ave (NOT the lamp posts on the road on Hennerton Way) lamp posts outside the front of No. 40 and No.35

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

I have reported these lamps being our several times over the past 3 years. The latest reply to report ref. no. 40149727 states that these have been fixed. This is definitely not true. The lights on the footpath at the front of our houses are definitely not working. It is pitch black along here at night so walking back to our homes at night is extremely risky and I am worried sooner or later someone is either going to have a nasty accident or, worse still, get mugged or assaulted. Please treat this with great urgency as they have been out for over 3 years now. I have already had a nasty fall as stated in my report when going to put the bins out and fractured my thumb falling on the path in the dark. I am very happy to meet anyone who would like me to show them which lamp posts are not working. My mobile number is 07931 575371. These are NOT the lamp posts on the road but on the footpath between our houses and the hedgerow seperating us from Roebuck Ave,
