A flex outlet plate and shallow 16mm wall box, very poor. Are you sure there isn't a fused spur upstream of that Buzz ?
No idea, called out by a company that do
emergency calls, isolation was in order
From main boiler, customer getting wet paints back to sort the boiler out, informed customer to tell wet pants to investigate, and if no up stream fuse spur needs one putting in.
I just love the strain relief at 3:20, the bolting straight through the vibration feet at 9:20 (so they're bypassed transmitting the vibration straight through).
Strain relief is low on the priority list when you have aesthetics to consider, like the colour of the cable.
Can't see any danger with the consumer unit or wiring to the meter around 10:45 though! 😉
In fairness, he did say he used rubber washers under the metal ones. :)

And he and his commenters think he's done a brilliant job.
He's so proud of his work, he feels the need to show off the innards of it.

Maybe he could get a perspex cover for it.
