The location of street lights that have been turned off, after midnight, in Dorset has been revealed by a Freedom of Information request. 

The Bournemouth Echo reports:

THE county council has seen the light and has now revealed which street lamps are being turned off after midnight.

And now Borough of Poole is considering its position of refusing to reveal the information in the light of the county council’s u-turn.

The information has been released by Dorset County Council following the intervention of the Member Champion for Freedom of Information, who came down on the side of the Daily Echo’s appeal.
