Leeds lights switch-off considered

Plans to save more than £1m over the next 10 years by turning off street lights in Leeds are being investigated.

Officials in the city believe that switching off one in eight lamps on main roads and one in 14 lamps on residential streets could save £1.3m.

Lights around busy junctions and road crossings would be unaffected.

Residents are being asked for their views and should contact the city council online or go to a library to contribute their ideas.
