OK…I agree it is a dramatic headline for a rather mundane event!
But I had cause to visit Drapers Lane corner on Friday night (17th April 2009) and can confirm that the broken streetlight reported to the East Riding Council via FixMyStreet has indeed being fixed! Hurrah!
See earlier blog post on Fixing My Hedon Streetlight.
Many thanks to FixMyStreet and the East Riding Council’s lamplighters service!
