  • Thanks for reporting this, as per the other report we will be contacting the landowner once again to take the necessary enforcement action to get the situation resolved as soon as possible. Thanks again for reporting this a site visit has been made and intact the wire that goes over the top rail is not electric and has insulators either side so there is no chance of putting hands on electric fence, we have however advised that a new top rail is fitted and the wire is placed underneath it so there is no confusion. we hope for this to be done in the next 4 weeks.
