Westminster City Council have made the following announcement:
“Up to half of our street lamps are currently operating 24 hours a day, following issues with our lighting operator contractor. We have been making preparations for this issue for some months and are making every effort to ensure that our street lighting services are returned to normal as soon as possible. Whilst there are no additional costs to the Council, we are aware and concerned about the potential environmental impacts of street lights operating during daylight hours when they would be normally switched off. This issue is affecting a number of public sector organisations including, we understand, TfL and Bromley Council. Our call centre and ‘Report It’ have been updated accordingly.”
The photograph was taken at 3.30pm on Sunday 10th March in Boston Place, by Marylebone Station.
We are making enquiries with the Council to find out what has happened and when the problem will be fixed.
