OUR SISTER paper, www.yourharlow.com can tell you that there is a great deal of anger and concern in Harlow regarding the street lights going off next month.
However, Thurrock Council has pledged that this will not be the case in the borough.
Portfolio holder for Transport, cllr Andy Smith told full council: “We will not be doing it.
“There has been frightening results because of it, including an increase in crime.
“We’re fortunate that we’re not run by Essex County Council, as we’d be in the dark by now. We’ll be keeping our lights on.”
