This would have made a great Monty Python skit 40 years ago.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">A church hall and picturesque village green were plunged into darkness when two light bulbs stopped working in 2007.
Now, three years later, the bulbs have yet to be repaired, elderly residents fear to go out in the dark - and the council is about to spend 8,000 moving the street lamps on the grounds of health and safety.
Parish councillors and locals in picturesque Glemsford, near Sudbury, have been fighting to get the lights repaired but workers from Suffolk County Council said they were unable to fix them due to a 'G39' health and safety issue.
