[link to this post]
 
How to reported to BT for kids abused FTTC cabinet as I saw three lads and one girl stand on top of the FTTC cabinet and other kids kicking the cabinet. I was shocked to see this when I pick up milk from my local spar shop.

Sounds more like a call to 101 required. Contact Openreach only if the doors were opened or some other opening into the cabinet made. Or graffiti I suppose. I'm sure I found a web form when I reported some damage a while back, but can't find it.

I would take a photo of it, but knowing it not safe to take photo where the kids were around see it. Not risky myself. I have called police but they aren't interesting and asking me to ring my own service provider.

And when I've used that in the past they have been adamant that they need the postcode :-/

You could always get your milk from a shop in the opposite direction. wink

TBH, the cabinet can take these small abuse from little kids, it's only a concern if the doors are opened!

Unless you can see actual damage being done there is nothing openreach can do, and as you found out, it's hard to get the police interested. If it's a regular occurance then contact your local beat officers, they may have a word.
If you witness criminal damage call the police and/or BT security 0800 321 999

Should of told the police that you had a gun and would deal with it yourself and thank them for wasting your time...

The police tend to take that sort of thing literally these days and do a middle-of-the-night battering ram assisted search.
