BBC TV Programme – Fake Britain – slams illegal and dangerous furniture

Tuesday 14 January 2014

A BBC TV programme last night showed how sofas and beds on sales from some of the UK’s largest furniture retailers is breaking the UK’s tough flammability laws and risking the lives of customers. Furniture from Argos, Homebase, Tesco, Harveys and Amazon was shown not to comply with the UK’s fire regulations and that the foam and fabric were easily able to be ignited and would go on to cause major conflagrations.

Labels which the law requires to be displayed on the furniture were shown not to comply and appeared to be fake and products to which these fake labels were applied were independently tested and were shown not to pass the statutorily required tests.

The programme can be view via the BBC IPlayer at http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b03qfnsf/Fake_Britain_Special_Furniture_Inferno/
