Wandsworth issues urgent warnings on carbon monoxide poisoning.
Wandsworth Council is issuing urgent warnings after two incidents involving high levels of carbon monoxide.

A group of eastern European builders who spoke little English nearly gassed themselves and people in a flat above.

They were working with a petrol- powered disc cutter.

They hadn’t understood warnings that the equipment should not be used indoors.

The lethal gas which has no smell was detected by a CO monitor in the upstairs flat.

In the second case, a woman in Battersea running an African hair and beauty business risked lives by burning charcoal indoors for ‘colonic fumigation’.

It was neighbours who reported a burning smell.

In both cases, the CO levels were 5 times the safe level.
