    Boiler pilot light won't stay lit after meter change

    We just had our meters changed from prepayment to smart meters. The boiler was lit after with no leaks, but has subsequently gone out and won't stay lit anymore. There is still a good gas supply to the cooker so I don't think it's a supply issue. Any ideas???
