My first guess would be induced voltage on the "earth" which may not actually be connected to earth. Check your gas pipe bonding is ok (prove that the gas pipe is earthed) and check the resistance between the "earth" and the gas pipe. if this is 0 ohms then I'm barking up the wrong tree. Best of luck!

Just check adamh, that it is a neutral as someone may be using it as a control wire and not identified it as so, happens regular that mate, used to happen a lot on industrial contrlled boilers, people to lazy to identify the wires.
Just because its blue or black take nothing for granted when it comes to boiler controls.
