Ticking time bomb' over 'widespread' meter tampering during cost-of-living crisis


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Nearly half of electricians and gas engineers have been asked to tamper with meters in the last year, as people struggle with the cost of their energy bills, new research suggests.

Almost a third of tradespeople (30%) also say they have seen evidence of tampering in clients' homes, according to the survey.

Tampering with a meter means it doesn't read the correct amount of energy being used.

But anyone caught doing it can face a £30,000 fine and even risk losing their life.
