Baker blames ‘faulty’ smart meter for huge blaze

By Peter Magill  @peter_magillSpecial Correspondent

A DOG bakery was destroyed in a massive blaze allegedly sparked by a poorly-fitted smart meter, it has been claimed.

Diane Murphy, 44, of Great Harwood-based Millie and Ruby’s, insists an engineer for E.ON failed to install the meter correctly – causing it to ‘overheat and burst into flames’.

She commissioned a forensic investigator who says two screws connecting wires to the unit had not been tightened fully – causing it to arc.The baker is now considering suing the energy giant after losing £70,000 in lost trade and cancelled contracts.
