The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Scotland is supporting a move to decrease the number of children in hospital as a result of swallowing liquitabs.

Families with babies across Greater Glasgow and Clyde will receive cupboard catches to keep household cleaning products out of the reach of youngsters, with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde launching the project after an increase in admissions at a local hospital.

Carlene McAvoy, community safety development officer for RoSPA Scotland, said: "RoSPA has been made aware of cases involving young children who have been injured by ingesting liquitab detergents after mistaking them for sweets. 

"It is hoped that this campaign, with the help of the free cupboard catches, will raise awareness among as many people as possible of the need to store chemical items, such as laundry detergents."

Mother Juliet Turner is also warning parents about the campaign after her 15-month old daughter ended up in intensive care after eating a liquitab.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801637200-ADNFCR
