Dave, Openreach were on my estate just over a week ago, same story as you. In every knook and crannie.

I came home one day to find them poking around in my front garden. Told them to bugger off post haste. They claimed they had permission and they were performing critical upgrades to my service.

I called the local PCSO as I couldn’t get into my house as they wouldn’t move. She was here within minutes and told them in very plain language to move immediately.   I now have a formal complaint with the police against them as do some other residents as their vans were blocking driveways and so on.  They literally thought they could do what they wanted.

They were allegedly doing fibre to the premises upgrades, my house hasn’t had any kind of land line for over 20 years and as far as I’m aware, never a BT one.
