Marks & Spencer bans sales of disposable barbecues

Marks & Spencer has announced that it has banned the sale of disposable barbecues in its UK stores.

The move follows a plea by London Fire Brigade for retailers to scrap sales of the items due to a wave of more than 1,000 grass fires impacting the capital during the recent heatwave.

In a tweet M&S said: “At M&S we want to help protect open spaces and reduce the risk of fires. We’d already stopped selling disposable barbecues near national parks and in London but given the unusually hot and dry conditions, we’ve taken the precautionary step of removing them from sale across the UK.”

London Fire Brigade praised M&S for the move by tweeting “Good news! @marksandspencer have announced they’ve removed disposable barbecues from stores. We want to work with retailers to stop the sale of disposable barbecues and reduce the risk of dangerous grass fires”.
