2019.02.04 Safety Notice: B&Q - Weyburn floodlights

The following notice appears on the B&Q website:

IMPORTANT!

B&Q have become aware that it is possible to incorrectly install products in the Weyburn Floodlight and Security Range by using the wrong type of cable (flat, twin and earth type cable). This may cause the product to be affected by water ingress, potentially causing a risk of electrocution. We would like to make customers aware that only round 3 core cable, with a minimum 6 mm diameter should be used.

Please check with your installer that only the correct cable has been fitted. Prior to inspection or if water is present in the light, switch off power supply. If in doubt on your installation please consult a qualified electrician.

The products were on sale between August 2018 and December 2018.
