Can't help, but can you parallel some smaller conductors as a temporary measure, or isn't there enough space to do that?

Was it a fire or something cool like that? Any chance of some photos?!

It's from the service head to the Ryefield and UKPN are involved for obvious reasons and therefore we can't really do a temporary job ☹️
I don't have pictures at the moment as its not me on site.

Put your request on several DIY or professional forums to cast your net as wide as possible, someone is bound to be able to help you out.

If you can get in contact with them the local council's "on call" electricians may be willing to provide the cable.

Short of that 22 mm copper pipe has a CSA of about 65 mm² which if flattened and with folds at the ends to fit into terminals and wrapped in tape would provide a temporary restoration

If you are a reasonable sized firm (therefore spending quite a bit per month on materials) and do quite a quite bit of business with a wholesaler who themselves are of a reasonable size (and therefore likely to have 70mm tails or even a bit of 70mm swa in stock). Then you could try and get your account manager on his home/personal number You might be able to get someone out to open up for you.

A lot of wholesalers will try and look after their bigger customers in the way you look after yours over the break

I've got some .1 copper in my van but I'm in Sussex.
The ukpn guys would have some back at the yard!
