In reply to a post by BatBoy:

Thank you.

I think it is why I got no compensation when our power was cut off for nearly 48 hours in February his year.

I was particularly annoyed by the Radio 4 Today presenter this morning saying 'of course there is nothing you can do about trees falling across lines'.

Oh yes there is, they can cut the trees down before they fall, they can provide more redundancy, or even put the cables underground as my new phone/broadband connection will be.
