Firefighters are warning Isle residents to be extra vigilant when using charcoal barbeques this summer.

Phil Leake, community safety manager at Humberside Fire and Rescue Service, said: “I urge residents to ensure the embers are fully out when they have finished barbequeing by pouring water over them and only empty into a steel container as plastic can be flammable when coming into contact with heat.”
