An unqualified handyman who installed a faulty boiler has admitted killing a woman and her two young grandsons.

Atalokhia Omo-Bare, 50, failed to fit an extractor pipe to the appliance at the east London home in April 2006.

Days later, Roselyn Idugboe, 66, and the two brothers, aged three and 19 months, were found dead, a court heard.

Omo-Bare, of Hackney, east London, pleaded guilty to three counts of manslaughter at the Old Bailey. He was told to expect a prison sentence.

(The boiler was fitted as a favour by a friend to the family rather than the actions of a rogue landlord towards tenants but it's a timely reminder of the need to have qualified engineers for boiler related work).
