  • First Report. Street Lamp number 29 together with the post and more importantly the electricity cables is now enveloped in a creeper. The post is situated in the verge that is owned by the County Council and is directly opposite number 20 Tews End Lane NN12 7NQ. This problem has occurred before. The creeper is growing from land owned by NCC who have accepted responsibility for it hitherto. If the creeper is not removed the electricity and /or telephone services will be at risk.
