Essex Fire Service have issued a safety warning after a number of tumble dryer brands announced they are reviewing the safety of their products.

Fire staff are warning people not to leave running tumble dryers unattended after checks by manufacturers found that excess fluff was coming into contact with heating elements and causing potential fire risks.

The brands affected are Hotpoint, Indesit and Creda.

They have issued this advice.

  • Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Don’t use tumble dryers at night or while unattended.
  • Clean the filters regularly to ensure they do not become blocked with fluff.
  • Items should be removed from the dryer immediately after the cycle and shaken loose to assist cooling.
  • Don't overload plug sockets.
  • Ensure that no more than 13 amps are in any one plug socket.

Thousands of shoppers have been taking advantage of pre-Christmas sales today on so-called Black Friday.

Last year, retailers across the country made £2 billion pounds in just 24 hours - but is this American import as popular as in recent years or has the novelty value already worn off?

Internet sales have already topped the one billion pound mark so it seems shoppers could be moving away from instore to online.
