Any damage to cables suggests that there is a problem.

If you see any damage to the cables that lead to the fusebox you should get a registered electrician to take a look. 

The responsibility for the maintenance of cables connecting the meter and fusebox are the responsibility of the property owner. If you are living in rented accommodation, speak to your landlord and they will get this checked.
