Mr Flanagan is urging parents to check their child’s costume has the EU safety mark and urging people not to overload sockets with lights and ensure candles are not near any flammable material.

Pat says it’s important to check your smoke alarm on the regular bases and if there’s is an emergency to contact 999.
