The unnamed family were put in danger by the negligence of local builder Nigel Parker - who was working on the construction of an extension at their home in Batley but is not on the Gas Safety Register - in September 2009.
A few months after this, the household boiler broke down and, when a professional visited to inspect the problem, several issues with the standard of Mr Parker's work were found and the boiler was immediately disconnected.
A subsequent investigation conducted by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) found he has illegally modified the flue of the gas-combination equipment while also leaving a meter unsafely positioned.
Recently, it was revealed that the boiler at the Westlands Community Centre in Newcastle-under-Lyme had been leaking, meaning residents using the location could have been exposed to carbon monoxide.
