A COUNCIL is appealing for the driver who hit a town centre traffic light to come forward.

The incident happened early morning on Wednesday (May 28) at the junction of Haywood Street and Derby Street - by the public realm area.

It is believed that a trader’s vehicle reversed into the traffic light causing it to be buckle over by around 45 degrees.

Mark Deaville, Cabinet Support Member for Transport on Staffordshire County Council, said: “We were notified that a trader’s vehicle reversed into the traffic light between 6am and 7am on Wednesday morning.

“The light will be fixed as soon as possible but it can take a day or two depending on the full extent of the damage.

“Accidents do happen and I hope the driver contacts us about the incident but if not we will ask for the district council’s CCTV footage of the incident so that we can contact the driver’s insurance company and reclaim any costs incurred.”
