See the light

A MIDNIGHT inspection of Hadleigh’s street lights had a positive outcome.

Mayor Penny Cook and councillors Sue Angland, Brian Lazenby and Jane Haylock were joined by Pc Matt Paisley as they walked around the town to see which areas were affected by the switching-off of lights between midnight and 5.30am.

Miss Cook said: “It was good – in most of the places we were concerned about the light was ok because the main street lights are on in the High Street.

“There was just one place we discovered which hadn’t got any light, near the George Street almshouse, and we will be contacting Suffolk County Council with a view to asking for an exemption,” she added.
