I am surprised that an installation as dangerous as this did not get dealt with more seriously.

It seems he was only convicted of Health & Safety offenses.  And he still denied that there was anything wrong with the installation.

A pathetic verdict.

"Jurors were told that the lights had significant defects, including a lack of appropriate insulation to prevent water getting in and no earthing at the distribution board from which the circuit was powered."
