There have been suggestions that hand sanitiser can catch fire if left in a hot car – this is not true. Click here for a statement from the National Fire Chiefs Council.
Watch out for scams
Scams over the phone are nothing new, but, in the current climate, they are being adapted. Criminals are exploiting the need to keep ourselves safe and take protective measures during the pandemic so are reinventing their scams to use COVID-19 as a hook.
Any unsolicited phones calls should be treated with extreme caution, and if they’re asking for payment details it’s highly likely to be a scam.
If you think you may have fallen foul of a scam, contact your bank immediately, change any passwords you may have divulged, and report the incident to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or online at www.actionfraud.police.uk
