Illegal gas work costs lives warns HSE

HSE is warning anyone working on gas appliances and systems without having their competence assessed that they are acting illegally and dangerously.

The warning comes as Peter Tongue, a gas fitter from Brecon, was jailed for three years for each manslaughter charge, to run concurrently, after being found guilty by a jury at Cardiff Crown Court of two charges of manslaughter and six charges under the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974.
