A number of homes in Fife have been fitted with fire safety measures, after recommendations from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

Those who moved into Fife Council's new-build properties have found that their homes feature all the recommendations in RoSPA Scotland's 'Can the home ever be safe?' document.

The 32 houses at the Ostlers Way development include several "safer by design" recommendations, which aim to lower injuries from falls, poisoning, burns and electrical accidents.

Jennifer Henderson, RoSPA Scotland’s home safety officer, said:  "Providing these safety measures at the construction stage is cost effective and shows commitment to reducing accidents in the home, particularly where young children and the elderly are concerned.”

News of these safety measures comes after Carmarthenshire steel-framed building specialist Shufflebottom collected a gold award from RoSPA.

A spokesperson from the company told The South Wales Evening Post that it felt "great" to receive the honour.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801436818-ADNFCR
