omnibox outside house vandalised

The box on the front wall of the house has been vandalised. It's making a beeping noise and the lady in the ground floor flat is going crazy from the noise. How do I get someone to help? Can this be made more robust to stop it happening again? Thanks!

Have you got a pic of the box?  There is nothing normally in there that makes a beeping noise?

Yes, although it's been painted over... just posted an image - should appear once the mods have checked it.

looks like it just needs closing. its come open it doesn't look damaged.

Also there is nothing in there that can beep. Its just loads of passive wire connectors

Re: omnibox outside house vandalised

@ezri As others have posted there is nothing in that VM box that will beep.

I wonder if the lady in the ground floor flat may have a smoke or CO2 detector that needs a battery change.  The warning beeps can be hard to isolate to a specific device but these are common culprits.

Re: omnibox outside house vandalised

Re: omnibox outside house vandalised

Good question, but she's checked every smoke detector (we did too!) and the beeping is definitely coming from the VM box. It's very strange.
