SIR - It is now over three months since I reported some street lighting problems in the Redburn Road/Redburn Avenue area. There are now three columns not illuminating; one does not even have a light fixing.

Every time I ring Bradford Council or send an email the response is that it can take up to eight weeks to resolve. They say: "It is within target". They seem to take the date of the last contact as that of the initial complaint; my email history shows different. It appears that if I keep contacting them nothing will ever get done.

I feel I now need to inform Bradford Council Tax payers, via the media, of the abysmal service that is being provided on this matter.
