This issue has been reported on 31st October and it is showing on your website as fixed. I just closed from work at 6pm this evening and some of the street lights nearer the Hengrove leisure park (playground) are not working. Originally reported as below by another person. ' The lights on this footpath are permanently off during the winter months. I work at South Bristol Community Hospital and park my car in the Leisure Park. I feel unsafe walking along this path- it is extremely dark. Staff have been threatened by teenagers using the park. The lack of lighting has been an issue for the last 4 years and this is simply not acceptable. Please ensure the area is properly lit before someone is seriously hurt or injured'.

This issue has been reported on 31st October and it is showing on your website as fixed. I just closed from work (south Bristol community Hospital) at 6pm this evening and some of the street lights nearer the Hengrove leisure park (playground) are still not working. Originally reported as below by another person. ' The lights on this footpath are permanently off during the winter months. I work at South Bristol Community Hospital and park my car in the Leisure Park. I feel unsafe walking along this path- it is extremely dark. Staff have been threatened by teenagers using the park.

Please help us as soon as possible because we are providing service to the public and need to be safe walking home from work. Thank you.
