Street light staying on through the night

Reported via mobile in the Street Lighting category anonymously at 14:46, Tuesday 3 May 2022

Sent to Rutland County Council less than a minute later

Hi, this is a follow up from my previous request for the streetlights on Northwick Road (and I believe some on Empingham road) to be checked because for the last couple of months they haven't been turning off at 12am but staying on all through the night. Light number 5 on Northwick Road shines directly in my window and is regularly disturbing my sleep. It was supposed to have been looked at nd dealt with under request FMS-RCC-09536 but still persists. The photo attached shows it on at 1:48am April 29th. I would really like the street lights to go off at 12 am as they used to under the part-night lighting system. Given the energy crisis and problems light pollution causes for human and wildlife health, please can this be rectified ASAP. Many thanks
