The traffic light is stuck on red

Reported via desktop in the Stuck on red category anonymously at 11:35, Tuesday 9 February 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2535542.

I was waiting at traffic lights on Compass Court, Hornsey, N8 7NU (just outside Argos), waiting to turn left into Hornsey High Street. The lights took a lot longer than usual to change and I knew something was wrong when traffic along Hornsey High Street was flowing, those lights turned red, the pedestrian light came on and then the lights on Hornsey High Street turned green again. Traffic coming out of Compass Court therefore missed a turn. I will leave it with you.
