Can anyone recommend a decent meter that detects electric cables and pipes in walls please ... i realise there’s plenty to choose from but i’d just like to know what’s decent and does what it says on the tin so to speak..

Thank you

They are all as good as the person using them. Mine have all been next to useless but the Bosch one was least useless. :)
A ++ on the Bosch one from me, circa £150 a few years back. Just lent ours out to a mate.
Our day to day tool is the pro version of this... DIY is £70ish from Amazon... you'll need a smart phone.
Note silver foil backed plaster board has really killed these type of things off.
And correct use of any tool renders the device useful, sadly most tools aren't.
