Cutting the gas canister
Cutting the gas canister

A DIY tip which featured on a BBC programme has been criticised for being dangerous and irresponsible. The renovators on The House That £100k Built, cut through a gas canister to make a light fitting. The experts praised the end result, but the makers of the canister say the move could have proved fatal.

So just how dangerous is it - and how risky is DIY in general?
