The darkest street in Colchester?
RESIDENTS say they have been left in the dark over their requests for better street lighting.
Yew Tree Close in Colchester has gained a reputation for being under lit.
The short cul-de-sac has just one lamp in the middle of the street, leaving many of the bungalows swamped in darkness.
It is a road populated by elderly and disabled council housing tenants.
The problem has lead to numerous complaints and appeals for more lamps to be fitted.
But Essex Council, the street light authority, denies it has been contacted and urged them to make fresh complaints.
