The Guardia Civil have detained two boiler fitters following the death of a painter and decorator at a property in Son Servera.

Local police went to this property after receiving a call from the deceased's employers. They had tried to contact him but had been unable to. The police found the body and became aware of a high level of carbon monoxide.

The boiler had been installed the day before and put into operation, but the gas pipes hadn't been connected properly.

There needs to be a Law stating any form of gas installation must have a Carbon Monoxide Detector. To be regularly inspected and tested. It would be wonderful if detectors could also stop gas being used until the leak or fault is rectified.
