Traffic Lights not working

Reported via desktop in the Traffic lights category anonymously at 15:39, Wednesday 21 July 2021

Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

The traffic lights coming off the slip road northbound at J21 of M5 have not been working for the past week or more. Motorists on the roundabout have right of way which creates a dangerous situation for drivers coming off the slip road. This surely cannot be the first report of these non working traffic lights but thought should be reported.
