Exposed cables, damaged street box

Joining in

I would like to enquire about reporting a damaged box outside of my house. It looks like someone has either kicked or detached the cover of the box which is nowhere to be seen and cables are hanging out and everything is loose inside whats left from the box. Would you please let me know what is the quickest and best way of reporting this so it gets sorted before any incidents occur. Thank you

The above refers to the big VM street boxes that serve many properties. If it’s just the omnibox that is attached to your property the primary place to report faults is Customer Services on 0345 454 1111/150 if you have a VM landline or wait two or three days for a VM staff member to get to your post.

There are 10 types of people: those who understand binary and those who don't and F people out of 10 who do not understand hexadecimal c1a2a285948293859940d9a49385a2

Thank you Tudor, yes I was referring to the small brown plastic box attached to the property. I had already seen the link and report form for street eqipment but thought it was only for the bigger green metal VM boxes that have a code on them as well as the form reqired filling that in as well.
