Commenting on the letter to Rt Hon Theresa May MP, Phil Buckle, Chief Executive of Electrical Safety First, said:

One year on from the Shepherd’s Court fire, we fully support London Fire Brigade’s call to Government to urgently address the issue of ‘white goods’ fires. In England alone over five fires a day are caused by white goods. These fires can have devastating effects as we have seen at Shepherd’s Court, Lakanal House and of course Grenfell Tower.

“As members of the government’s Working Group on Product Recalls and Safety, we have offered our recommendations on an improved product safety system, including the introduction of a centralised recall database. Now we, along with the  London Fire Brigade,  the Mayor of London and other safety campaigners would like to see these recommendations put into action. Otherwise, every day white good fires put more  lives at risk.”
