Traffic lights on a20 london bound facing wrong direction

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3253707.
The traffic light for a20 london bound at fiveways has been rotated 90 degrees clockwise and is now pointing towards green lane. This is the second time this has happened so I assume this is getting turned by large vehicles knocking it as they turn right. If so, this is going to keep happening. New traffic lights have recently been installed at this location, maybe this one has been located too close to turning vehicles and might need to be moved.
