Halton Trading Standards have received information that mattresses are being sold out of a white van in the borough. Legitimate traders do not sell mattresses out of the back of vans during a global pandemic.  Do not buy these mattresses – protect yourself and your family. It is highly likely that these mattresses are poor quality and do not meet the required flammability standards set under UK law.

There are currently restrictions on businesses selling products due to Coronavirus. These restrictions are in place to protect the public and prevent the spread.
