Millions of metres of dangerous cable in homes across UK

Millions of metres of dangerous electrical cable may be in homes across the UK, a BBC investigation has found.

In 2010 it was discovered Atlas Kablo, a now-defunct Turkish company, had sold 11 million metres of cable that posed a potential fire risk in the UK.

The Health and Safety Executive decided against a compulsory recall and only seven million metres were recovered.

Critics say more should have been done. The HSE insisted its response was proportionate to the risk.

The British Approvals Service for Cables (Basec) had found the cable had too little copper, meaning it was at risk of overheating.

At YESSS we only sell the best in British manufactured cable, so you can have the peace of mind when it comes to quality.
