Street Cable Exposed

Hi, I am new to virgin Sky for 22 years. The cable from the street into my property is exposed and only protected by a plastic covering. On my side of hedge it’s at ground level, on street side it is 6inches out from hedge and 15 inches high, this was discovered After the hedge was cut. I have contacted Virgin 4 times now and have been told somebody will be out to review in 48 hours, but nobody as yet has been. I attach a photo which shows this is a health and safety issue somebody could trip over this in the dark, or somebody could damage the cables. So far my experience with Virgin 1 out of 10 for customer service, when the cables were installed in street the contractors dug through my gas pipe on a Friday afternoon then next day my water pipe!!
How can I get this resolved quickly39D9FAB7-773A-40E8-9F3E-4DE6B726FB17.jpeg1A3F7B0A-2896-40EA-9884-0747EA0A351B.jpeg207313A5-63FA-42DA-922D-DD5A6140A2C0.jpeg

Re: Street Cable Exposed

Hi Steven,

It was reported to the concerned team before, who were not very concerned as nobody made contact.
