<strong>Dangerous connections</strong>
Says James about this photo: &#8220;Someone&#8217;s come through the power socket with a Cat5 cable. So a) it crushes the cable. And b) it&#8217;s right next to the power. So any professional that comes in would look at that and switch off all the power to the house and then rewire it. It&#8217;s illegal, it&#8217;s crushing the cable, it&#8217;s interference, and you&#8217;re likely to nick something in there and set it live on your data. Which is the main reason why you have to be licensed to do phone and data cabling.&#8221;
