“It was extremely dangerous due to electricity wires hanging out of it .I put a safety warning out on social media to alert residents of the dangers and not to touch it. This is a very busy laneway as it is the main pedestrian route to Central Drive.

“I contacted  NIE and they sent a team of engineers to look at it straight away. They assured me that this will be fixed as a matter of urgency.

“I urge any resident who finds a street light in this condition to contact their elected representative straight away.
