    I need to install a new cooker hood, but there is a vertical cable in line with the screw fixing. Any suggestions?

    Could you not drill a new fixing hole in the cooker hood away from the cable run?

    No, it's a chimney type one, and the fixing for the main body of it sits slap bang on this cable line ‍♀️

    Dig and find cable or not find cable. Go easy digging and turn power off. Then drill hole and fill around to make good. Not worth the risk of hitting cable and hopefully there will be nothing there when you dig as missed cable and you can drill OK.

    If cable is definitely there then consider moving it across
