BBC Breakfast request - hair straightener burns

(1 Post)

We've had a request for case studies from a producer from BBC Breakfast.

They are doing a story on an increase in children being injured by hair straighteners which were left unattended. This is based on new research, due to be published tomorrow.

Melanie is looking for case studies who have had this happen to them and who would be willing to come on the programme to talk about it tomorrow morning at their Salford studios. They will provide transport.

Melanie is aware that this is a sensitive subject and has emphasised that this piece isn’t looking to blame people. If you're interested in contributing, or have any questions about the piece, please email Melanie on

We at MNHQ don't have any further details about this and Melanie won't necessarily be monitoring the thread, so if you have any questions please do contact her directly.
