Councillor Campbell said “I have received a number of complaints this week that the lights on the walkway which links Westway  and Glenowen are out again.

“This is an ongoing problem with lights along this walkway as it seems vandals have found a way of knocking these lights out very easily.

“As it’s the main walkway between both developments  through an area that is very dark and isolated it’s important that these lights are working particularly through the winter months.

“I have been in contact with the Council to try get the repairs done as a matter of urgency but we can’t keep coming back to this so it is very important that we find a lasting solution.
