Is your home at risk of fire because of faulty appliances?

An independent review of unsafe products is demanding that the government takes urgent action to ensure consumers know enough about the risks.

So far 3.6 million people have been contacted because of a design flaw in Hotpoint, Creda and Indesit tumble dryers.

Pressure to overhaul the recall system comes a week after a faulty Indesit tumble dryer was to blame for a fire at a block of flats in Shephards Bush in London.

Lynn Faulds Wood, who chaired a Government commissioned Independent Review of the recall system, joined us on the show this morning.

Staycations are on the rise this bank holiday

Why would you want to go anywhere else? The staycation economy has become one of the strongest in the UK as holidaymakers spend more time and money on local shores, according to a report.

Some 70% of UK adults have been on or are planning a staycation - a rise of 7% - and are spending an average 6% more per holiday than a year ago, the survey from Barclays Business found.
