Recently our amber street lighting has been replaced by much brighter white LED lighting. Whilst this may help motorists see hogs cross the road is there any evidence that brighter street lighting is in any way detrimental to hogs or indeed other wildlife ?

i should add that I have approached our local council because apparently the level of lighting can be controlled and they can turn t down, but so far no action. So when I approach them again I would like some hard evidence, if there is any, to support my request.
