Lily hits out as streetlight remains broken

A Derry pensioner says she’s still waiting to have the streetlight outside her Rosemount home repaired, months after it was first reported.

85-years-old Lily O’Hagan feels so strongly about the issue that she’s now written a poem about the issue.

She’s also made a video address to the British Prime Minister David Cameron who she says is ultimately responsible for the cuts which are impacting on the elderly and vulnerable here.

Lily told the Journal this week that the lighting issue outside her home has made her feel even more vulnerable and that she is afraid of tripping on the footpath and injuring herself after dark.
