Have your say

AS THE nights grow colder make sure the electric blanket you snuggle up with is safe.

Trading Standards is holding a free testing day for anyone who owns an electric blanket and wants peace of mind when they use it.

The testing will take place at Waterlooville Fire Station, in Forest End, Waterlooville, on October 9.

You must make an appointment by calling Trading Standards on (01962) 833358.
