A Colchester employee has been ordered to carry out 240 hours of community service after illegally fitting two gas fires.

Mark Bond also serviced a boiler at homes in the town even though he was not registered to work with gas, leading to him providing someone else’s Gas Safe ID number.

Mr Bond, trading as Bond Technical Services, of Granary Court, Hythe Quay, Colchester, was given six months imprisonment, which has been suspended for 12 months.

HSE inspector Edward Crick said: “Mark Bond had previously held suitable registration and competencies for working safely with gas and was therefore well aware of the need to be registered with the appropriate authorities.

“Although thankfully nobody was injured, Mr Bond put two householders at potential risk of injury through his thoughtless actions.”

Mr Crick advised homeowners to check the registration details of anyone working on their property to check they are properly qualified.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801634556-ADNFCR
