Power to garage

:?: Hello I have recently had an electrican wire some sockets and lighting to shed all seems well except for the loft where he took the wire from to the shed.
Although he has a circuit breaker out in the shed, the place where he joined the cable is only joined using insulating tape in the loft is this safe or should he have used a plastic fitting of some kind.
Hope this makes sense I am dumb at this sort of DIY that is why I got a qualified Electrican.

Hello Blakey got in touch with spark ref above he has said the connection is safe but I am not convinced, he has said that for a washing machine dryer and the lights it is more than adequate.
Would you recommend getting another spark to look at it or if the worst comes to the worst I have amate who does his own diy he could fit a couple of junction boxes or whatever is required.

SUPPOSESO
ON HIS CERTIFICATE HE GAVE U , THE ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION CERTIFICATE REQUIRED FOR THIS WORK AS IT IS PART P NOTIFIABLE , WOULD B THE SIZE OF CABLE USED.
PERSONALLY IF I HAD TO PERFORM A JOINT IN A CABLE IN THIS CASE
( I WOULD HAVE USED 10 MM2 TWIN AND EARTH AND AN ARMOURED
10 MM2 OUT ) , I WOULD GET FROM WHOLESALERS A CONNECTION
BOX RATED AT 60 AMP TO DO JOIN.MOST WOULD CONTAIN TERMINALS
FOR THE TASK AND BE CLOSED WITH A LID AND A WARNING NOTICE
ATTACHED OF A DANGER OR MAINS PRESENT.
BECAUSE IT IS NOTIFIABLE WORK THE PERSON CERTIFYING MUST COME BACK AND LOOK AT IT ( I AM ASSUMING YOUR ELECTRICIAN CERTIFIED THIS WORK AND IS COMING BACK TO DO CONNECTION
IN MORE EFFECTIVE MANNER.)

Hello I have asked him again and he says the work is safe,I am in N.Ireland and it seems the rules you quote do not apply here everything works but I still have some concerns.
Can you tell me what I should ask another Electrican to check as I am going to get another one to look at this work?

ASK YOUR NEW ELECTRCIAN TO CHECK THAT THE CABLES USED R
THE CORRECT RATING FOR THE DESIGN CURRENT OF CIRCUIT
INSTALLED.
INSIST ON HIM USING A PROPER CONNECTION METHOD ENCLOSED IN
A SUITABLE ENCLOUSURE , AND CORRECTLY RATED AT THE DESIGN
CURRENT OF CIRCUIT.
ON THE LID OF THIS CLOSED BOX ATTACHE A WARNING NOTICE OF
DANGER 240 V ON IT.
