Following on from our Facebook page topic last week titled 'Should Government Ban Disposable BBQ's?' here 👉 http://hfd.news/jfL  


London Fire Brigade, which has been calling for a ban on disposable barbecues, said it was "good news" and wants to work with retailers to "reduce the risk of dangerous grass fires".

In the wake of multiple wildfires and weeks dry weather across the country we are seeing more and more fires, many are caused from disposable BBQ's not being disposed of safely and now the London Fire Chief is calling for a complete ban with growing support from other fire officers.

London’s Fire Commissioner is calling for a total ban on disposable barbecues following one of the busiest weeks in our history.

Back ban petition

Disposable barbecues also pose a health risk and heat can be retained for many hours after a barbeque has been put out. The Brigade is backing a petition set up by Toby Tyler whose son Will was severely burned by a disposable barbecue.

The petition can be found here https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/618664
