Irons vice chairman Karren Brady has revealed in her Sun column that his haphazard tea making methods could have led to disaster.
She wrote: “The striker has had a fire in his apartment which caused damage and an evacuation. Everyone in the block, including three other Hammers are unhurt.
“Apparently, he did all this making a cuppa by boiling water on his stove while he had a shower. I’ve bought him an electric kettle.”
