Duration: 40 minutes

Investigation into how the deaths in Corfu in October 2006 of British children Bobby and Christi Shepherd - poisoned by lethal fumes from a gas water heater as they slept - has raised serious doubts about the travel industry's safety standards.

A UK heating expert tells Panorama the gas boiler was faulty, incorrectly installed and dangerously adapted. The parents believe their children would still be alive if travel firm Thomas Cook had ensured proper safety audits were carried out.
