Traffic light often stuck on red for traffic trying to exit Berners Street

Reported via desktop in the Stuck on red category anonymously at 13:39, Sun 28 November 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3147840.

Several times each day these lights hold traffic on Berners Street forever. Traffic eventually drives through them, which is dangerous to all other road users of course. Several times a day vehicles further behind sound their horns to try and get those at the front to push through the red light. This is a real nuisance to me as the lights are outside the living room and a bedroom in my flat, and this has been happening between midnight and 4am even - it happened at around 4am on Sunday 28 Nov which was "the final straw" for me, hence this report! It is an intermittent fault as at times they seem to work ok. This has been happening for weeks (shortly after these new lights were installed on 24 October).
