Traffic light not picking up vehicles so stuck on red

Reported via mobile in the Stuck on red category anonymously at 05:44, Wednesday 19 January 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3250986.

2 days in a row I have sat waiting at these lights for 5 minutes or more. The lights from wardour street crossing oxford street. Tuesday I was lukcly enough to have a lorry come up behind me that must of triggered the sensor to make then change. This morning myself and another van sat there and the lights wouldn't change. We where forced to go through the red light as being on a one way street. We couldnt turn around. I think the sensors are damaged. This being 5.30 in the morning we was lucky there was no traffic to contend with.
