Investigations on the broken traffic lights in Wrexham, UK revealed that leeches were the reason for the lights on their motherboards.
The United Kingdom, which came up with interesting news from time to time, managed to become news with deteriorating traffic lights. Although the distortion of traffic lights is not surprising, the suspects found as a result of the research are quite interesting.
According to local authorities in Wrexham, the traffic lights at the pedestrian crossing in the Rhosddu Park area failed. Afterwards, the authorities identified those responsible for the deterioration of traffic lights: Leeches.
Wrexham city council member Marc Jones clarified the situation on his Facebook share. “The controller was severely damaged by leeches, and the council was unable to get all the necessary repairs before the Christmas holidays, Jones Jones explained.
Jones also said that a new power supply has been ordered and that the repair process will be completed soon.
