Ealing Lib Dem street light petition passes 500 signatures

Ealing Lib Dem petition calling on Labour-run Ealing Council to reverse its policy of dimming street lights at night has passed 500 signatures just a few days after it was launched.

We set up the petition due to concerns about women's safety after high profile incidents in the borough. The party commissioned a study and it came up with two main recommendations - to reverse the light dimming decision and for local police teams to patrol in a more visible way.

Ealing Common community campaigner Connie Hersch says "we ask that Labour's Ealing Council stops dimming street lights at night so people feel safer to reduce the chances of serious incidents of crime and anti-social behaviour in our communities".
