Over the last 2 weeks I have been getting quite a lot of noise on my landline which has been getting progressively worse and today I have found that I am not able to receive incoming calls. I have been able to dial out but with a lot of noise but callers can't dial in. I have done a service status check on the website but it returns a error (see attached JPEG).
Could this be brought to the attention of a OCE please.
I'm picking up a Loop fault on the line. Loop faults can be caused by faulty handsets or internal wiring, so to rule this out and allow us to send an engineer, can you confirm if you have tested another handset.
Also, if you have a Test Socket please make sure you have tested at this point with the alternative handset.

Yes my son came round with a wired handset today and tested it via the master socket's internal port but the noise, albeit not as loud, still persists. I have noted that the noise is at it worst during times of rain and windy conditions, as was the day when no incoming calls were registering on my line. My son also switched out the ADSL micro filter with no improvement.
The wiring into the property goes from the Openreach drop wire into a GPO 52A junction box then on to the BT master socket.
My son also went outside and followed the external cabling to the pole and found this situation below (see photographs)
Could this be the cause of my issues?
Thank you for testing. It may be the trees causing the issue.
I have passed this to our network team for investigation.
Let you know when they comeback.
