Serious hazard/danger

Reported via desktop in the Street Light - Equipment damaged, pole leaning category anonymously at 18:40, Tue 16 November 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3127622.

Street lights both facing wrong way, lights tampered with, they are not in fixed position. These lights must be replaced by ones that can not be moved/re-positioned; it seems some people are tampering with lights every day. PLEASE REPLACE LIGHTS WITH ONES THAT ARE IN FIXED POSITION, AND CAN NOT BE TAMPERED WITH.

This is a serious hazard/danger, risking lives every minute of every day. When is it going to be dealt with? why are the lights not in a fixed position; lights that can not be tampered with
