Durham CC is spending£600,000 on testing and replacing lamposts, according to the Newcastle Journal.

The move is to prevent a tragedy such as when a falling lampost killed a passing motorist in Gateshead in 1995.

Lamposts are deteriorating due to age and other factors like vibration from increased traffic.

Last year£250,000 was spent on the lamposts, this year a further£350,000 will be spent.
