Outside 50 Sywell Leys, Rugby there is a street light marked number 7. At night it lights up the inside of my house. The bedroom is flooded with light it is about 15ft from the bedroom window. It needs turning off or shielding installing.

  • A couple of plates have been fitted but the plates are too short and do not meet so there is a gap with light still shining directly at the house and the plate furthest away is reflective on the inside so light is also bouncing/reflecting back from this plate

  • As before the plates have been fitted but light streams through still. They have told me they need to change the head of the light so they can put proper blinkers onto it. They have added plates to the one behind the property and it has made a massive difference, this was lighting the garden up brighter than the full moon light, it was also reflecting off the conservatory and you could walk around the house with no lights on as it lit up the whole house. These white lights are awful being near a property they are blinding and a really sharp light.
