Halloween’s gone, bonfire night went off with a bang, so what’s next? Ah yes, the festive season. And time to get all the decorations and twinkling lights out of the box once again.
But don’t forget, Christmas lights are one of the biggest causes of house fires in the UK over the Christmas period. Be it faulty lights, lights getting too hot or overloaded sockets, Christmas lights can ruin a wonderful holiday.
Last year, fairy lights went up in smoke causing 20 fires while Christmas trees, decorations and cards were also a fire risk and responsible for 47 house fires, leading to 20 non-fatal casualties across the UK. Candles sparked around 1,000 UK house fires, resulting in 9 deaths and 388 casualties.
Top Tips for Christmas Lights
If you buy Christmas lights that are faulty, you have the right as a customer to return the lights to where you bought them for a refund, replacement or repair.
About a quarter of a million people complained about faulty products last year in the UK. Faulty products can cause significant injuries and sometimes they can be fatal.
