Accident prompts switch-off fury

A coroner pledged to try and end the council’s policy of turning off street lights after a man was run over on an unlit road

Grant Barry, 31, was killed in Stapleford Abbotts after a night out. Coroner Eleanor McGann said: ‘Why on earth is there no street lighting at all? Essex County Council’s policy of turning the lights off is inherently dangerous.’

Richard Frost, ILP chief, told Lux: ‘There are more creative approaches such as dimming or part switch-offs.’
