  1. Did she not smell the gas!?!
    It strikes me that whether or not he had fixed the meter back to a wall or on a shelf, the removal and refitting of it is what caused the problem … if there was a dodgy joint upstream of the meter then disconnecting the meter probably moved the pipes and weakened the joint … he probably carried out let-by and tightness checks but these wouldn’t have shown anything awry.
    I get the feeling they need to blame somebody and the gas engineer is the unlucky guy who touched the meter.

    I think the old lead flexible connections should be removed as a priority, some of them can be fifty years old. slightest movement can lead to problems. surely correct testing back to the EVC would have shown up the leakage.
