Rosie Cooper MP met with local residents, Mr and Mrs Woodthorpe, to witness a large light which has been left on in Birch Green since Christmas.
The street light on the roundabout on Birch Green Road opposite the Woodlands Community School in Skelmersdale towers over the surrounding area. Despite its sheer size, the light has been ignored and has continued to shine throughout the day without being turned off. Concerned residents alerted their MP to the problem.
“I have written to Lancashire County Council and asked for its immediate repair."
“It is really not acceptable when a street light of this proportion is left on during the daytime. We all must do our bit to be energy efficient. I for one will certainly monitor this situation.”
