In these areas, it is likely that there is an electric cable hidden behind the wall and as you can imagine a metal drill bit and electricity don’t quite mix. Use an electronic tester to determine whether there is any danger of encountering concealed electrics. Cavity walls are much thinner than masonry walls, and contain your home’s pipes and electrics so you have to be careful when hanging pictures. Use a multi-purpose electronic tester before you drill; this handy device is placed onto the wall and emits a signal to alert you of any electrical current or metal pipe work.

You can then fix the screw into the wall plug as usual and hang your picture.
