The council has said that it can solve this issue where the lights are close to windows and gardens by angling the light away, adjusting the colour levels of the lights, or adding a shield to the back of the light.

However, many were pleased to see the change.

Agincourt Road resident Martyn Gale said: ‘My wife feels safer going to her car in the early hours. Since the lights were changed, there have been no strange people hanging around in the shadows. It is nothing but an improvement in Buckland.’
