Plumber burns down £5m mansion on first day April 19, 2007

Posted by Al in : weird , trackback

What a way to start your career! On his very first day a trainee plumber managed to set light to the insulation in the roof of a listed mansion. The fire spread rapidly and the entire house was damaged during the blaze. I’m sure there’s going to be some legal wrangling going on over this fire, as the contractor who employed the lad would probably be responsible, however the fire spread very rapidly, and concerns have been raised over the construction of the roof. Whoever wins, it is a shame that such an attractive building, in such a nice location, should be burned to the ground.
