In the Seven Sisters by-election, Liberal Democrat candidate David Schmitz has called for action to improve safety at the electricity substation on Ermine Road. David Schmitz says that whilst the prominent “danger of death” signs show just how dangerous the site really is, the station is very poorly secured with loose and easily climbable rotting wooden doors.
As well as lobbying Haringey Council, David Schmitz has last weekend written to local residents, alerting them to the safety issues.
“Recently a child climbed into a substation to retrieve a football and could have been killed.This must not happen on this site. I have written to Haringey Council asking for the substation to be more securely protected,” said David Schmitz.
