Putting up external CCTV, how to make cable holes look tider.

Hi.

I live on my own and have put up my own cctv outside.

A friend came round to drill a hole where I needed to run the cable from inside to outside.

Their drill wasn't long enough to go all the way through so drilled half from inside then the otherside from outside and met in the middle.

The hole is a bit missey, its just a bit smaller than a 50p.

How can I tidy this hole up, both sides, the inside is in the corner of my living room.

I checked where the broadband was fitted and whoever installed that but the cable through a rubber sleave and then covered it in clear silicone, however this also looks very messy.

Lastly. I am putting another CCTV up put need to run the cable through and interior wall, I beleive it is double brick. Whats the best way to do this? Thanks
