Motorists who use the Broadway Meadow car park are calling on the Council to fix the lighting before more people get hurt.
Sue Hinchcliffe from Henbury, who is a regularly user of the car park near Wilmslow Leisure Centre, had a fall whilst returning to her car about 5.30pm on Monday, 26th October, the first work day after the clocks went back.
Unfortunately Sue broke her right wrist and cut her knee during the fall which has caused her a considerable amount of pain and inconvenience as well as resulting in loss of earnings.
Sue said "My work colleague and I both commented as we were heading to Broadway Meadow carpark how dark it was. We then crossed over the road that is the entrance to the Leisure Centre and that's when I fell across the pavement as the first street lamp on the right hand side was out."
She added " So there will be no parking for me in this particular car park for the next six weeks or over the winter months whilst the light isn't working. I do remember from last winter that this particular light on the approach to the car park was not working."
Dina Robinson, who witnessed the fall and kindly came to Sue's aid, said "The street light at the entrance to the car park is not lit. If I remember correctly it was in the same state last winter."
She added "I did try to report the fault on the Cheshire East website but to do so you have to identify the light by its number and I couldn't find a number on it even in the daylight!"
