It sounds like a grounding issue.  See my comment on how 240v is used here.
We have four wires to contend with.  We even have outlets in our bathrooms,
something you folks in the UK sensibly omit from your construction
parctices.  However, any circuit that is in an area exposed to water,
outside, garages, etc must be protected by a GFCI.

It is sad to recognize that several individuals, usually housewives,  
in the UK die each year when attempting to use faulty washing  
machines that are leaking water onto a wet floor, when the user is  
barefoot. I mean, several. Having said that, it's high time we took  
steps to reduce our mains supplies to 120V - a lot safer.
