Halton Borough Council Trading Standards is urging residents to register their white goods for project recalls.

Nearly half of all domestic appliances aren’t yet registered for product recalls and safety updates.

A spokesman said: “During lockdown we relied on them to protect and provide for our families. Keep the magic going by registering. It’s free. www.registermyappliance.org.uk

“If you or somebody you know has been caught out by a scam or fraud please contact one of our specialist officers, Linda or Sue on 0151 511 8785 or 0151 511 8775, who are already working with people in Halton who have lost thousands of pounds to scams.”
