Fumes hazard for families
Friday 22 November 1996
Clerkenwell Magistrates Court heard the council was let down by private contractors but it accepted responsibility. Kurt Coelho, of the Health and Safety Executive, said that sub-contractors disconnected vents connecting the flues without telling the council. These had not been re-connected when the work was finished. Mr Coelho said: "It could have led to carbon monoxide poisoning to anyone in the living room. If the tenant was not aware of the situation it could have caused death."
