Why not evrry other lamp instead of tranches of lights why for instance is the croesy bypass fully lit ,no pedestrians there,yet Ty gwyn rd houses evrrywhere in patches of darkness?

Poor kid! I'm just 2 years older than him, I was also hit by a car in 2008 (my first year of Llantarnam) up in Thornhill and was left fairly close to death, there was witnesses on my behalf yet Gwent Police still came up with the result that it was my fault for being on the road as well as a group of other school children.

Wish the boy a speedy recovery.
