Surgeons warn of e-cigarettes burns after injuries

Burns surgeons have warned of the potential dangers of e-cigarettes after treating patients who were badly injured when the devices exploded in their pockets.

Doctors at the Welsh Centre for Burns and Plastic Surgery in Swansea have treated five men for serious burns this year.

It is the first time they have seen such injuries from e-cigarettes.

Speaking on BBC Wales' X-Ray programme, burns consultant Dai Nguyen advises people what to do if their clothes catch fire.
