The Health & Safety Executive issued a safety alert to homeowners, tenants, landlords and the plumbing industry after the tragic news story concerning the death of a baby as a result of the hot water system overheating.

If these warning signs apply switch off the immersion heater immediately and report it to our Customer Services Centre as a matter of urgency.
If you have any worries, please feel free to contact us.
