We are carrying out excavation works for a proposed classroom extension at Allerton Primary School, Lingfield Approach, Leeds. LS17 7LH, we've exposed what appears to be a fibre obtic cable, Virgin Media came to site and claimed it's a BT cable. Please can you send an engineer to site to identify if this is a live or reduntant cable asap please. This is now holding up our excavations works and effecting progress to what is already a very tight programme of works. I'd apreciate your help and swift response regarding this matter.
