  • Still wire everywhere after engineers visits. Council suggested I contact BT. Why? Surely this is a council matter and they should contact businesses leaving mess on their highways!!! They are in more of a position to potentially fine companies that do not tidy up after them. Makes you wonder what we pay the inflated Council Tax for!!!!
