Have your say

RESIDENTS of Hampshire are being warned to avoid using unqualified technicians carrying out heating repairs.

Residents should check technicians are Oftec registered for work with oil or GasSafe registered for gas systems before they start work. Malcolm Farrow, from Oftec, said: ‘Don’t take risks and use a suitably-qualified technician. If a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is.’
