Badly installed down lights

When installing down lights in your ceiling you should always take care to keep the fittings well away from the ceiling joists to avoid any potential fire risks from the heat of the lamps. On no account should you EVER cut the ceiling or floor joist to fit a down light. I came across this install today, 3 of the fittings were on the joists and the joists have been cut by around 3 inches and a piece of metal tacked in place in an attempt to fire proof it. The eagle eyed among you may also notice they are wired in with bell wire ....I'm speechless...
