Buried alive scene ‘aw­ful’

Fire-risk tum­ble dry­ers crit­i­cism

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - NEWS -

Paul Rudd, right, has de­scribed the “aw­ful” process of film­ing a scene in which he is buried alive for his new Netflix show.

In the first episode of his se­ries Liv­ing With Your­self, the Avengers star said emerg­ing from a shal­low grave, naked apart from a nappy, was “the weird­est thing I’ve ever had to film”.

It is “ex­tra­or­di­nary” that as many as 800,000 defective tum­ble dry­ers could still re­main in peo­ple’s homes four years af­ter Whirlpool re­vealed they are a fire risk, MPs have said.

The firm’s re­sponse to han­dling the safety flaws too of­ten “owed more to PR man­age­ment” than to mak­ing the ma­chines safe for cus­tomers, busi­ness, en­ergy and in­dus­trial strat­egy com­mit­tee chair­woman Rachel Reeves said.
