Witham: Hundreds sign Carol's street light petition
11:00am Thursday 10th October 2013 in News
More than 1,000 Witham residents have signed a petition for street lights to be turned back on.
Mum-of-two Carol Howe started the petition because the darkness has left her so frightened, she now blocks up her front door from the inside before going to bed.
In just two weeks, Miss Howe, of Chestnut Walk, Witham, has collected 1,100 signatures from other concerned families on the Forest Road estate.
Streets across Braintree district have been plunged into darkness from midnight to 5am since September 1 as part of Essex County Council (ECC) cost-cutting measures.
