As some of you read a thread i posted on Monday after using Wilkinsons own Sun Block factor 50 on myself and ds we both got burnt - me badly, ds not so badly.
Anyway i took your advice and contacted trading standards and they just got back to me!

they saia Wlikinsons was in breach of contract and i would deffantly get ssome form of compensation and they have put it through to there product saftey team who will try and persue it so it get a recall! I have taken photos of my sun burn and am going to my nurse to get a letter to say im not fibbing!

im pleased i wasnt expecting any result!

will keep you updated - just remeber dont buy sublock from wilkinsons!
