Ha ha ..... we DO use un-health & safety methods sometimes, to get the end result. I have a 2LB club-hammer that has been whizzed through countless trees, and over a few narrow rivers/ Canals, in order to get a wire from A to B. Needs must.  :P ;D ;D ;D

All ISPs will receive a copy of the engineers report.
Some ISPs share them with the EU, whilst others will deny their existence.

Plusnet are usually pretty good and will paste a copy of the engineers report into your fault ticket so you can see whats been done. iirc Zen normally share too.
