A set of traffic lights on Canterbury’s London Road have been flattened.
It means the pedestrian crossing outside the London Road Surgery is out of operation.
Plastic fencing surrounds the stricken post.
There is also police tape around it, prompting one observer to describe it as an image from “CSI Canterbury”.
But Kent Police said today that it did not know how the lights came to be knocked over.
Traffic lights in Canterbury are maintained by Kent County Council.
