The ESB is advising householders across the region not to overload electrical sockets in their house over the Christmas period.

People are being asked to check for frayed wires or loose connections around decorations in their home.

The electricity network is also asking people not to use ESB poles to hang outdoor Christmas lights - as the electricity wires overhead are live and extremely dangerous.

Arthur Byrne, ESB Networks Safety Manager says the main mistake people make at Christmas  is plugging too many plug tops into one socket using adaptors and extension leads.
