Mouse damage to cables – photos

Mid December I noted that we’d finally found out why one of the lighting circuits was tripping – mouse damage to the cabling (see here).  I finally got round to uploading a couple of photos of the damage.  I still think we were slightly lucky not to have a fire.

A couple of the cables, both chewed right down to the live wiring :-
