Visibility discrepancy with traffic lights

Reported in the General Fault category anonymously at 15:15, Friday 17 July 2020

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2205028.

On approaching the junction with Northy Avenue and Dorset Road its very hard to see the lights as they are obscured by the trees. However there are a set of lights just the other side of the junction which show green and from a distance it looks like the junction lights are green when they are not. I had to brake suddenly when i realised this and i know there are accidents here quite often
