Light holder has broken off the pole, hanging loose + light not coming on / fire hazard (wires exposed)

Mix of issues; someone must have reversed into it with a large vehicle recently (there have been workmen down here recently fixing a water main), damaging the pole, knocking off the 'mount' at the top of the light so it's hanging down / sometimes not working at all or flickering / not lighting the area well.

The light is actually at the bottom of Bigwood Lane on the corner on the right, partly hidden by vegetation hanging down from the wall.

Could also present a fire hazard now, as it's hanging down, pressing directly into the vegetation and appears to have exposed wiring up-top.

Issue is a relatively recent one, but a high priority one; there are no other lights on Bigwood lane whatsoever, meaning the area is in complete darkness; or at best lit by unsteady light + above wiring in contact with dry vegetation.

For some reason your map/find my streetlight function isn't working so some directions to find it and the streetlight number. To find it, turn off Park Street onto Great George Street, then take the second left turning called Bigwood lane.

Go to the bottom of Bigwood lane where there is a 'dead end' T-junction (from a car's perspective) and it is immediately on your right next to the 3+ storey brick wall. The streetlight number is unknown.
