Outside brown cable junction box cover broken

The outside cable junction box for our house has had a broken cover for several months now. Given the situation with Covid-19, I thought that, as this was a relatively minor problem, I wouldn't bother the faults guys with it so I fixed it temporarily with gaffer tape. However, my temporary repair has now failed so I now need a proper repair since the weather is getting worse.

As the VM site suggests that their phone lines are really busy and should be kept clear for major problems, I wonder if one of the VM staff members on this forum might contact me to arrange a repair please.

I have tried to report this via the VM website but ended up going round and round the help section to no avail, so any help is much appreciated.

Two options.

The numbers to ring are 150 free from a VM mobile or landline, or 0345 454 1111 from any other phone (chargeable as standard UK landline phone no.). Select broadband faults,

or If you have a mobile phone with internet access via WiFi or mobile data you could try the text message service.
