Virgin Media Cables damaging front of property. How do we have these moved or removed?

Joining in

Hi There, 

A virgin media cable is running over the guttering of our flats and is causing damage to the front of the building - bringing water down and onto the brickwork. This is now starting to cause damp inside and we need to get the wire either moved or removed - pending a decision by the top flat owner as to whether their tenant is using Virgin Media or not. 


Please can you let me know how this can be achieved? 

Best wishes



Alessandro Volta

Cases like this are usually very long and painful to resolve, as Virginmedia are always slow to do anything. If you hold on here a staff member may join in and offer to take details, and then it will go very quiet. It might help if you can post some photos here. 

Find out if that connection is still in use. If it's not you can cut the cable down before it causes any more damage.

My name is NOT Alessandro. That's just a tag Virginmedia sticks on some contributors. Please ignore it.
