Oh I see now, operating the MCB enables/disables the meter. I didn't realise the busbar wasn't into the breaker with the earth wire. Hope they have been reported...
 
Picture number 6 is after I changed it back, its hard to explain but they removed the neutral from the meter by taping the end up and putting back in the main fuse earth/neutral block and used to earth from where the pme neutral/earth block is to bring a neutral into the fuseboard, only reason i can think of somebody doing this is to jump the meter ?

Someone put a lot of thought into this but obviously not into the safety aspects of it!

This will raise some eyebrows! Found at a village hall that had been recently inspected by a 3rd party. I was there to replace some lights and circuit protection. Nearly fell off me steps when I took the lid off this!!:eek:
And no it wasn't me who blew the fronds off, it was the previous spark who didn't need the power off to swap out some mcbs! Oops IMG_20190828_1218107.jpgIMG_20190828_1220186.jpg

if you had a wooden heart ( see Elvis), would it be prone to heart worm or wood worm?

Yeah they are thin the forks! But it is wylex!!
Ahh my trusty old non bs131 steps have rubber feet and I had switched it off prior to removing the cover, and yes there is no need on this earth to have a db that messy!! I couldn't leave anything looking like that! I did offer to rip it out and do it properly but they haven't got the funding to do it unfortunately:(

@DT1991 Yes mate totally gone! I did explain to them that it would not contain a fire as there is a massive gap straight up into the loft space above! Not even grommet strip round the edges that are left! The worst thing is they had a fire in the building not so long ago, fps didn't work and it was only down to 1 individual that the whole place didn't go up!
