Street lamp has been replaced by one that is too tall

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility category anonymously at 12:52, Wed 28 December 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 4062490.

The streetlamp was replaced by a taller one which is obscured by trees, making the roadway very dark at a well known drug dealing spot. Could the post please be reduced in height to what the old one was, or the trees pruned to allow more light to reach the road? There seems to be no facility to report the post, so I'm reporting the tree outside No.21.
