    At the Kent County Council budget debate on Thursday Liberal Democrat County Councillors Brian Clark (Maidstone South) and Rob Bird (Maidstone Central) will be pressing for full night-time lighting of Kent's roads to be reinstated as soon as possible.

    Last year the Conservative Administration adopted their 'Safe and Sensible Street Light' policy which plunged many of the county's roads and passage-ways into darkness for up to 5½ hours each night. Many residents have been very concerned and the scheme did not gain full support from Kent Police. People who need to be out and about in the early hours feel far from safe and there has been some anecdotal evidence of criminals taking advantage of the darkness.

The resulting backlog, it was reported, could take six months to clear and may require the commissioning of a private company to clear it.
