Council changed light bulb in lamp post with no electricity

A council has regularly changed the bulb in a lamp post for the past two years even though it it not connected to the electricity supply.

The street light in Strood Green, near Dorking, Surrey, was knocked down and damaged by a tractor about two years ago and a new one was put up.

But it has not been connected to the electricity supply and so it has never been lit.

However, that's not stopped the council spending public money sending workmen along every now and then to change the bulb.

My comment: The usual public sector 'one hand doesn't know what the other is doing' cock up.
