Bromley firm director given suspended jail sentence

The director of a firm in Bromley has been given a suspended jail sentence after removing asbestos from a property without a licence.

Mr Petery Horrey and Absolute Asbestos Ltd were hired to carry out asbestos insulation from the boiler room of a Camden home, before later lying to the householders by saying that the room was safe to enter.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) investigated the incident, finding that Mr Peter Horrey has broken rules under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2006 law.

HSE inspector Dominic Elliss said: "He clearly set out to deceive these householders but, worse than that, he was apparently content to put them and the plumbers who had been booked shortly afterwards at risk."

The dangers of using gas were recently outlined by the HSE after the group prosecuted David McDonald for allowing a family to use a boiler that released carbon monoxide.

Mr MacDonald was sentenced to six months in prison, given 200 hours of community service and ordered to pay over £8,000 in expenses.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801451134-ADNFCR
