Watch out for wig peril
SWANS fans heading to Wembley are being warned of the dangers of flammable mohican wigs.
Trading standards officers have found that some black and white wigs which are being sold in the city are highly flammable and could cause serious injury if worn near a naked flame.
Swansea Council's trading standards officer David Picken said: "We want everyone travelling to London to have a great time and proudly wear the colours of the Swans.
"Fans have the opportunity to buy lots of different novelty items but some wigs we have tested fall well below current safety standards.

"If you have bought any of these novelty wigs to wear at the match then you should act responsibly and avoid contact with cigarettes, matches and lighters."
Tests carried out on sample wigs have found they burn for longer than the two seconds set down in safety guidelines.
Officers will be patrolling the railway and bus stations on the morning of the game looking out for potentially dangerous gifts on sale.
