Have your say

People in Ilkeston are being warned to be extra vigilant when charging electronic cigarettes following incidents where the devices have exploded in people’s homes.

Derbyshire County Council’s trading standards team have issued the warning after several reports of electronic cigarette batteries overheating or exploding while being charged.

Trading standards officers recently carried out a sampling exercise following dozens of complaints about unsafe e-cigarette chargers and batteries.
