Supposed to leave a bonding notice informing responsible person. I would note it down in your notes section. Unsafe situations procedure mentions it as does TB102.

Are you not able to move it?

Would need an electrian to join on to the clamp where it is presently and extend I would of thought. Not enough slack for me to move it. Its around 1.5 to 2 meters from the meter.

FWIW BS 7671 says within 600mm where practical. So if it’s before any tees then I would leave it well alone.

Tin hat on

Not sure it can be extended anymore, I’ve been told by our sparks it has to be a continuous loop. As it has been advised by others it appears to be ok as it’s before any branch :D

Your sparks is misinformed.

Good practice says it should be continuous, but nothing in BS 7671 says it has to be continuous.
