The Electrical Safety Council has warned that the majority of consumers are ignoring product recalls and as a result households are using electrical goods that could cause a fire or electrocution.

In the last six years there have been more than 250 product recalls of electrical goods.

Andy Reynolds, the Electrical Safety Lead at the Chief Fire Officers Association, told BBC Radio 5 live about the online tool for consumers that will quickly and easily check the safety of your electrical products.
