WALKING through Garema Place at dusk last night I was a little surprised to find the space in darkness, with only the lights from the shops and restaurants to guide passersby.

A spokesperson for Shane Rattenbury has confirmed some sort of mystery issue is to blame.
TAMS are aware there is an issue and have been monitoring each night, they are yet to identify what the issue is but ACTEW will be down there today.
