Warn­ing over un­safe goods

The Oban Times - - News -

UN­SAFE goods have been de­stroyed by Western Isles Coun­cil’s Trad­ing Stan­dards as part of a crack­down on door-to- door sell­ers.

Ear­lier this year gen­er­a­tors and chain­saws be­ing of­fered for sale by doorstep sell­ers in the is­lands were seized by po­lice and Trad­ing Stan­dards in Uist and Barra.

The goods did not com­ply with safety reg­u­la­tions and, af­ter be­ing drained of oil prod­ucts, the ma­chin­ery has now been crushed. Un­safe hover boards pur­chased as Christmas presents from an on­line auc­tion site were also de­stroyed.

To re­port doorstep sell­ers, con­tact Trad­ing Stan­dards on 01851822694 or po­lice on 101.
