Street lamp illumination is a waste

THIS week I have been driving daily to visit an elderly ex-parishioner of mine in Linton, a route which takes me down the Little Walden Road at approximately lunch time.

And every day I have noticed a street lamp fully illuminated near the junction with Limefields.

I can see no apparent reason for this to be functioning in broad daylight, day in day out, and frankly I am quite perturbed our council can allow such blatantly wasteful practises in these alleged times of austerity.

Whatever happened to saving energy and saving money, never mind the environment?
