Dear Editor,

I am somewhat mystified.

During spring and summer this year, I noticed that the street lights in Kempshott stayed on all night and yet now, as we head in to autumn/winter they have reverted to being switched off between the hours of 1am and 4am.

I would have thought it would be far more important to have the street lights on now as the daylight shortens and nights get longer or have I missing something?

Nigel Johnson, Kempshott
