Builder admits putting public at risk by fitting boiler

A builder has admitted putting the public at risk by carrying out work on gas appliances which he was not qualified to fit.

Allan King, aged 76, of Sealands, Mortehoe, North Devon, admitted removing and fitting a boiler at Pebble Court, Arcade Road, Ilfracombe without the necessary Health and Safety certification.

He also admitted breaching his duty to ensure the health and safety of residents at the flat by carrying out the work between September and October last year.

Judge Geoffrey Mercer, QC, adjourned his sentence at Exeter Crown Court and released him on bail. He ordered a probation pre sentence report but said he is giving no indication of sentence.

The prosecution is brought by the Health and Safety Executive, who also imposed an immediate prohibition notice in November last year which banned King from carrying out any further gas work.
