RESIDENTS were plunged into darkness after street lights were cut down without warning.
Four lampposts in St Dominic Road and in St John’s Road were taken down by Essex County Council engineers without explanation.
Paul Smith, borough councillor for St John’s, said representatives should have been informed before action was taken.
Essex County Council says the lampposts were unsafe and will be replaced eventually.
