A rogue builder who left fumes pumping out his client’s boiler has been handed a six-month suspended sentence.
Daljit Kundi caused a substantial health and safety risk to the property owner, inspectors said.
The 63-year-old was trading under the name Dal Construction when he began fixing up a new room for the premises in Dagenham’s Fordyke Road.
He was charged with breaking building regulations after council officers visited the property in November 2015 at the request of the resident.
Their evidence was passed to the Health and Safety Executive, who successfully prosecuted Kundi.
