Using foreign appliances in UK sockets is dangerous if their plugs have not been converted for UK use. This could cause a fire or electric shock.
- The plug and socket could overheat and start a fire
- The appliance cable could overheat and start a fire
- You could get an electric shock
- Lack of fuse protection increases the risk of fire
Do not put yourself or others at risk by using foreign electrical plugs in UK sockets.
