Think before you rent or lodge!! How about landlord checks
Landlord set 240-volt booby trap for lodger before attacking him with hammer after row over satellite TV
An 'irrational' landlord tried to electrocute his lodger with a booby-trap after an argument over his tenant's satellite TV subscription. Eric Malcolm, from Royston, Herefordshire, wrapped a live 240-volt extension cable round his living room door handle in a bid to electrocute Tony Gilesnan, before hitting the tenant over the head with a hammer.
