Derbyshire County Council has teamed up with Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service to test electric blankets owned by disabled people and those aged over 60 for free.

Councillor Ellie Wilcox said: “It’s shocking to realise just how many people put their lives at risk every night during winter, without even knowing it.”

Testing will be at Glossop Fire Station, in Whitfield Park, on October 14 from 9:30am to 4pm.
