This transformer is on my local housing estate, basically there is a wire (not sure if insulated), within easy touching of the fence. there's lots of kids playing round this area and im worried someone might injured/killed. the wire looks a biy like the size of a seatbelt.

could this be dangerous if touched or do you think it will be insulated.

Without seeing it, it is hard to comment, but a call to the local electricity company wouldn't go a miss, better safe than sorry. If you look around this transformer there should be a phone number somewhere, if not, then i would inform local police, and let them do the calling for you, but dont dial 999.

Cheers..........Howard

Could just be an earth strap but wouldn't hurt to get it checked

I agree, DEFINITELY make the call... worst thing that could happen, the DNO waste an hour... Imagine how you'd feel if you ignored it and a kiddie was killed...

I'm wondering if the OP would join a plumbers' / gas fitters' forum if (s)he smelled gas in the street.

I've got the number of some irish scrap metal recyclers who'll remove the offending wires.

Most substations around here have a sign with a phone number on... pretty standard as far as i know... why didn't the OP just ring them?!
