All-night lighting will be restored to a popular rural footpath and cycle path after an official change of heart.

County Hall has agreed that a path between south Hatfield and Welham Green, part of a national cycle route, will get illumination all night after Councillor Paul Zukowskyj received numerous complaints about it.

He said: “After digging out the actual agreed policy, I found a loophole that suggested there may be hope.

“I’ve now been informed that due to the loophole and that the request had come from me as the local county councillor, the lights will be returned to all night illuminated as soon as feasible.”
