Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2372250.
The problem is on the lights that are on your right hand side travelling towards Richmond (nearest Grosvenor Gardens). The traffic lights are fixed to pole by two retaining brackets, one at the top and another at the bottom of the lights unit. The lights have sheared away from the bracket at the bottom. As a result they are being held only by the bracket at the top and are resting on the lower bracket under their own weight in a skewed position. They could fall in high winds. As this is a pedestrian crossing with the button immediately below the lights as we approach winter this poses a risk. The crossing is used frequently by the kids from a nearby school.
Your report has been investigated and we can confirm that there is a fault with these traffic lights.
