All homes in Scotland are set to have a minimum number of smoke alarms after a 30-year-old law is amended. Changes to the Housing (Scotland) Act are being made in the wake of the Grenfell Tower blaze in which 71 died.

There will be a 10-year age limit for alarms and all alarms will have to be ceiling-mounted, and should be interlinked.

The move appears to be popular with electricians  Smiley

Point of order: 72 died as a result of the Grenfell fire

A 74 year old women died in February after 7 months in hospital with severe burns

Sadly this news was largely lost in the media hysteria in relation the the snow storms
