    "Would depend on what the incident is, it could be a component that has failed and as a result, an accident has happened, we aren't aware of what the incident entails.

    Personally, I think it should be reported with the details and they will need to decide if it needs to be investigated.

    "All incidents should be reported.

    I believe that you can report anonymously if needed.

    Health and safety is always of paramount importance and incidents involving electricity are particularly dangerous and may even present a danger to life.

    Call the Incident Contact Centre (google for phone number ) opening hours Monday to Friday 8:30 am to 5.00pm"
