While many electricians and electrical engineers are fully qualified and do a great job, there are still some people out there who do shocking work (sometimes literally!) and the results can be disastrous.
Here’s some examples of what not to do! We teamed up with Crap Electrical UK to showcase some of the biggest electrical tragedies around.
Nick Weeden found this beauty – you don’t want to miss the target here!
Peter Jaggard found this installation on a new block of flats.
Eddie Payne, who found this one, said: “How not to connect trunking…”
Dell Shannon found this one in a car wash. Have you ever seen anything like it?!
