Vehicle ran into it and now doesn't work

Reported in the Street Light category anonymously at 23:17, Sunday 21 June 2020

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

A vehicle ran into the lamp post box cover which is now visibly damaged and the light hasn't worked since. It was only a few days ago but this is a dead end street with a tight alley running up the side of our property that connects to the street behind. Without this light this end of the road is now completely pitch black, it creates danger for residents trying to park and turn vehicles at night on an already tight and over crowded road, and is a security issue for the residents on this end as you're no longer able to see who is on the street or hanging around in the alley.
