    There's no regulation to say electric sockets under sinks aren't allowed. Common sense tells you it's not ideal and I would definitely get the plumbing sorted without gaffa tape.

    Not sure if this falls foul of the iee regs with regards to zoning.

    You may be better going to our brethren on the dark side....
