An undercover investigation by Which? claims that there have been 'multiple failings' by Whirlpool in dealing with customers who own fire-risk tumble dryers.

Following reports of almost four million fire-risk dryers in UK homes and some customers having to wait up to a year for their machine to be repaired, Which? made undercover calls to the Whirlpool call centre, surveyed more than 800 affected owners and heard in-depth experiences from 40 case studies.

Whirlpool: "The safety of our customers is our number one priority. We are committed to doing everything we can to ensure that the modification programme is being carried out in a safe and timely manner. The scale of this modification programme is considerable and we're continually looking into alternative options which will allow us to progress the programme at a faster pace. As a result we continue to recruit extra engineers and call centre staff to speed up the modification programme."

Fatberg problem - Don't just throw it down the drain

This is what happens when fat is not disposed of properly

The water supplier Thames Water says it has finally found out why Oxford has such a big problem with 'fatbergs'.

When collating the results of a recent survey the firm found that around 80 percent of the city's restaurants were not using fat traps to stop oil and grease spilling into Oxford's sewers. Therefore, the fat collects in the sewer and drains below the city streets and creates the huge, solid deposits, otherwise known as fatbergs.

Earlier this year, a 20 tonne blockage was removed from one drain in the city centre. Kate Bunkall's report explains what happened. The interviewee is Alex Saunders from Thames Water.
