Councils ponder street lights out policy

Post by Praesepe »

Cash-hungry South Wales councils are considering turning off street lights in a bid to save money.

Local authorities are facing massive increases in electricity bills next year and at least one in South Wales is considering cutting the hours it lights streets - and a second has refused to rule it out.

Many a night I saw the Pleiades , rising thro' the mellow shade , glitter like a swarm of fireflies tangled in a silver braid
