The wait button isn't working at the location marked in red in the photo

Reported via desktop in the Pedestrian wait button not working category anonymously at 17:52, Thursday 9 September 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2991036.

The button on the side shown in the photo with the red circle is not working. I'm not sure when the issue started, but I have noticed it since Monday when children went back to school. When children from the local school finish classes, they can't cross the road easily due to this problem. Many children are trying to run across the road and dodge cars to be able to cross, so it is very hazardous due to the large amount of traffic on the road at school pick up time.
