Homes left in the dark after street lights out for weeks

Have your say

The street lights on Maltravers Road, Wybourn, in Sheffield had not been on for several weeks before concerned residents contacted Action Desk.

They had contacted Northern Powergrid on several occasions but their street was still in darkness at night and elderly residents were becoming anxious about leaving their homes.


After a call from Action Desk, Northern Powergrid said it had carried out works to repair the lights but that it would be sending out an engineer that night to double check it had worked.

A spokesman said: “I can confirm an engineer attended and replace fuses at the street light and that should have rectified the problem.”
