Electrical contractors are being urged to cease using 5 amp fuse wire purchased in the last six months from either: B&Q, Wilkinson, Homebase, Makro or Robert Dyas.

The NICEIC warn that the wire has been identified as defective and may result in significant overheating with a potential risk of fire.

Anyone who believes they might have this wire is urged to stop using it immediately and call the Nexus helpline on: 01952 238 156 for further advice.

The recall only applies to 5 amp fuse wire purchased between 1 July 2011 and 31 January 2012.

The 15 Amp and 30 Amp fuse wire supplied on the same card is not affected and operates as intended.
