    That's the question being put by two angry councillors representing Lickey End, after residents were left in the dark due to a lack of streetlight repairs.

    Residents in Lickey End, Bromsgrove, have waited over A YEAR for a faulty streetlight to be repaired on a dangerous junction.

    Highways operatives in Worcestershire are supposed to fix faulty street lights within 28 days according to the County Council's policy, but residents in Lickey End are furious after the Highways Department continually ignored their requests, which started back in July 2020.

    Local councillors are angered at yet another delay in the opening of the footpath between Harvington Road and Charford Road, after it was announced the path would not be open for school term time.

    Josh Robinson, Lib Dem County Councillor for Bromsgrove Central added, 'This footpath was meant to completed in 12 weeks, it was delayed once due to the council not wanting to put the bridge in place at the same time as Charford Road being closed but now we have another delay, doubling the time it was originally meant to be closed. This is unacceptable and gives me no faith that any other projects for on the A38 will be completed on time.'

    Bromsgrove must take seriously the risk of flooding to avoid even worse disruption for residents in the face of global warming, a working group of Bromsgrove District Council has warned.

    The warning came just before the historic UN climate change report issued this week which predicts increasingly extreme weather across the globe. Flooding, heatwaves and droughts are likely to become more common and more intense as a result of global warming, according to the International Panel on Climate Change. The effects will be felt everywhere including here in the UK.
