Test electric blankets before snuggling up for winter
NEATH Port Talbot residents are being urged to have their electric blankets tested, before snuggling up for the winter months.
Trading Standards are hosting a series of events across the county, offering free tests to make sure the blankets are still safe to use.
If electric blankets are faulty or dangerous in any way then it could lead to fires, causing injury or even deaths.
Tests take five minutes and officers will be available from 9am to 4pm on Wednesday, October 16 at Neath Workingmen's Club and, from the same times on Thursday, October 17 at St Agnes Church in Port Talbot.
