LETTER: Are you sure these ‘so called security lights’ are that effective in Ely?

Salesmen have been at work in Ely selling householders, at great cost, so called security lights which are triggered by any nocturnal creature on its nightly wandering

This is causing a great deal of light pollution waking other residents in the early hours, upsetting wildlife, this is very antisocial behaviour.

Are these lights effective in keeping intruders away? The salesmen will say yes, but of course they are biased by the huge sales commission, gained for having sold these devices to the householder, perhaps the police could comment.

Certainly legalisation is required requiring householders to restrict the floodlighting to their own property.
