A worried mum says broken street lights are posing a danger in Huddersfield.
Shazia Akram has been trying for weeks to get four street lamps working again.
She says the lights have been out near her home in Orange Terrace, Fartown for more than a month.
And with dark nights now here, she has safety concerns when taking her two young children to and from the local mosque.
But Shazia claims she has been passed from pillar to post by Kirklees Council departments when she has reported the fault.
“It is well over a month since I first reported the problem,” said the 35-year-old customer service adviser. “And I am still waiting for something to be done.”
Initially, Shazia rang the council’s Streetscene section and asked for advice.
“They took details and said they would sort it out,” she said.
“Nothing happened, so I rang back and was told the problem was a highways matter. So I rang them and they were not very helpful.
“I was going round in circles. Then I was told it was a matter for the electricity company and that they would pass on the details.
“But still nothing happened.
“It is pitch black on our street with only three or four lights working. And some of those are half dim.
“I am worried about my children. They are only seven and eight and it’s dark when I take them to and from the mosque. Even I can’t tell where I am going.
“I really wish someone would do something.”
A spokesman for Northern Powergrid said: “Residents with such problems should initially contact their local council.
“The authority should send someone to check the situation and if it’s something they can’t fix, they pass it on to us. We then have 20 working days to do the repair.”
A Kirklees Council spokesman said: “The council have been made aware that the street lights on a short section of Alder Street are not working. We are investigating the cause and will arrange for the problem to be resolved as soon as possible.”
