Asbestos insulation on Overhead Power Cable?

15 May 2019 11:17

Hi, just a quick one,

Have noticed over my back garden, the overhead powercables have what looks like a white/beige insulation, looks almost cottony. The cables are pretty old. Is it likely to be Asbestos insulation?

What should I do if  it is? Contact the power company?

 

Cheers

Dave

Hi DaveM1993,

I'd suggest you contact the power company if you are concerned. I'm not sure we can help you further via the Cancer Chat forum, but if they do find asbestos and you are worried about exposure, you should contact your GP.

Hope that helps,
