BCC street light cover was broken on 18.11.19 - previously the light was intermittent

There are homeless people sleeping outside the garage doors of 7 and 8 Wapping Road, and using the area as a lavatory. The light was working very intermittently until last night (18.11.19) when someone broke the cover. People go through the recycling and waste bins overnight on Mondays before an early collection on Tuesday mornings. They leave an awful mess behind. It is unsafe for residents to go out after dark. A functioning light would be a deterrent to the anti-social behaviour which has been going on for months. Please could BCC repair the cover and the light (it is definitely a light owned by BCC). It has never been maintained in the 35 years we have lived here.
