WARWICK District’s streets will stay lit until 1am thanks to a persistent fight by residents and ongoing campaigns on Twitter and Facebook.

Officers at Warwickshire County Council agreed to move the midnight switch off forwards by one hour to allow for late night walkers and party-goers to get home safely along well lit streets.

As from Friday, the majority of the town’s lights are now be switched off from 1am to 6.30am to save the council £500,000 each year.
