Vegetation obscuring Street lights

Reported via iOS in the Street light fault category anonymously at 07:43, Monday 15 February 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2545859.

Trees in this area have grown so big that for most of the year they block out all light from the streetlights resulting in pavement being in darkness. Either the trees need to be regularly thinned out or cut back to let the light shine down. Or the lights need moving to the other side of the road.
