Change your clock and check your smoke alarm

2016 was the 10th anniversary of the introduction of smoke alarm legislation, which meant many alarms would have reached the end of their 10-year working lives.

This year, the key message is that all households should check their smoke alarm at the end of daylight savings when they change their clocks.
