Definitely, definitely, absolutely not...

Spare a thought for Kent Highways. With an electricity bill of around four and a half million pounds a year for lighting our streets, there's a rumour doing the rounds that they're turning the lights off to save money.  This has caused considerable consternation among those who, understandably, fear increased numbers of traffic accidents.

Radio Kent pressed KCC Cabinet Member and Highways Supremo Keith Ferrin on the issue. Leaving no room for uncertainty, Keith answered:

"Definitely, definitely, absolutely not. We do have to reduce our existing bill but there are ways of doing that which don't involve turning off street lights."

And they accuse politicians of sitting on the fence...
