Streetlight leaning dangerously

Reported via desktop in the Damage - pole leaning / equipment detached from pole/facing the wrong direction category anonymously at 15:11, Mon 13 March 2023

Sent to TfL 15 minutes later. TfL ref: FMS4308262.

This matter has been reported, from what I can find, on 5 separate occasions going back to early February & including once by me about 10 days ago. Yesterday I received an email advising the problem had been fixed. NO, IT HASN’T. The lights may be working but the pole is still leaning at an unnatural angle. Today is very windy & it was wobbling in the breeze. Not sure what constitutes “fixed” in TFL’s world but that’s not it. These lights are dangerous
