    Hmm... I think there's a plasma missing from your picture.... ;-)

    If the chimney breast is solid, there's no way you can put the cables in the wall unless you add a false front to it. Alternatively, trunking or pipes that are camouflaged to look like some sort of support - I can't no Carol Smile, but that's what I'd try!

    As always, I recommend that if your putting wires behind a wall, put trunking in instead so that you can add or change the cables at a later date without taking the wall down again.

    All the best,

    Dr John Sim.

    call the police quick its been stolen:D :D :D

    b&q are selling a angle cutter/grinder with 4 1/2inch disk for £16.00 so the depth of cut will be perfect for some conuite/trunking .


    cut 2 lines from where u want the wires to start and end. hack out stuff in middle put trunking and wires in and fill over.

    saying this i been meaning to do this for ages
    ;) ;) ;)

    b&q also do an SDS drill for £30 which comes with a 25mm chisel attachment - also handy for that 'hacking' out moment.

    I'm still not brave enough, so I've got 3 lots of 16x25mm trunking on the wall, painted the same colour. Almost looks like a support. Almost :p
