BBQ and outdoor cooking




  • Never use a BBQ indoors, on a balcony or roof terrace. This includes any products that are being sold as “balcony bbq’s”. They must not be used under any circumstances as they present a fire risk to you and your surrounding neighbours.
  • Never leave the BBQ unattended once lit  or whilst cooling.
  • Keep children, pets and garden games away from the cooking area. 
  • Position your BBQ in a large outdoor space, away from anything that may catch fire (trees, fences, rubbish etc). BBQs can easily get out of control and spread - keep a bucket of water, sand or garden hose nearby.
  • Always follow the safety instructions provided with your BBQ for safe use and storage. 
  • Never use petrol or paraffin on a barbecue; use only recognised lighters or starter fuels on cold coals.
