Newspaper transcript

“George Hayes, 36, Maltser,  of Oak Street, Bishop’s Stortford, was summoned for permitting a breach of the Lighting Order on December 21st.  P.C. Springett said he was on duty in Bartholomew Road about 6.45 p.m. on this day, when he noticed an illumination in the direction of Oak Street.  On proceeding there he found that a light was coming from the window of defendant’s house, the blind of which was not sufficiently thick or dark to prevent the light from escaping.  He pointed it out to the defendant, who said he had forgotten to put the covering over the window.  Defendant expressed regret and said he had a brother-in-law home from France and he forgot about covering the window.  A fine of 5 shillings was imposed.”
