Corrie's carbon monoxide story 'already saving lives'

Jennie McAlpine, who plays Fiz in Coronation Street, has told The People that the current carbon monoxide storyline is "already saving lives."

Hopefully it will get people to check their boilers and get carbon monoxide monitors.

There are 4,000 people a year who are affected and 50 die every year from ­something that could be very easily eliminated.

I've been told by the people at the Gas Safety Register the ­publicity surrounding the plotline has saved lives already.
