I have just managed to nick the ring main while trying to put a nail in the wall to hang a picture. Big flash and sparks everywhere.
Now I have calmed down and turned off the supply, I have chipped away the plaster to inspect the damage to the cable. There are scorch marks on the insulation and I don't fancy leaving things as they are.
Can I repair this myself or do I need to call an expert?
It also seems that the cable is just buried into the plaster (no conduit and not a stud wall) - should I address this also?
