    Decorating the spare bedroom which has a pretty old built in wardrobe.

    This cable protrudes from there. Any ideas? Aerial cable maybe??? I don't want to rip it out if it could be useful

    Looks like an ordinary TV aerial with part of the plug missing.

    Tv aerial, with the remains of a connector on the end.

    The foil screening should not be touching the copper core.

    It is not a 'live' cable so you are perfectly safe to touch it, rip it out, or use it again.
