Using Fixmystreet to get media coverage

There's an interesting story from the Western Mail about someone who used Fixmystreet in conjunction with a local campaign.

Local residents found that HGVs were regularly driving up a narrow street which was on a key route provided by sat nav systems. Local campaigner Mrs Clark said: "The police were called and expressed their ‘concern’ that after two years the problem remained unsolved. I am appalled by the attitude of Denbighshire County Council.”

It looks like the complaint on Fixmystreet helped create the news hook for the Western Mail article and the pressure of the two was enough to get the council to act accordingly.
