telegraph polo

Hi, really didn't know where to post this so choose here. The problem I have is some idiot who lives up the street from me has taken to chaining up his rather large motorbike to the pole outside my house, So do BT do anything about this or are they not interested. Just need some pointers in how to tackle this. Many thanks, andy.

Re: telegraph polo

It would probably classes as a hazard, epecially if someone wanted to climb the pole.

Report it to Openreach, as they own the pole.

 

Use this link, and see if they can help.

 

Report damaged or dangerous Openreach network

Re: telegraph polo

Go buy yourself a bike and chain it to the pole outside his house.

 

To be honest though I don't think there is much Openreach can do about it, like Keith said it is kind of a hazard if someone needs to climb the pole because they may not be able to secure their ladders to it with the bike in the way but what are Openreach going to do, pit a note on the bike saying please don't chain it to the pole?

 

Would the person even take any notice of it?

Re: telegraph polo

Why padlock a pole up, who would nick a 9m piece of wood?
