Trading Standards have said: "The product has been identified as presenting a serious risk of electric shock.

The product's internal wiring is inadequate with insufficient creepage and clearance distances.

"Should the wiring fail, the insufficient creepage and clearance distances may lead to the product becoming live, which if touched by a user can lead to an electric shock. The insufficient creepage and clearance distances also present a risk of fire.

"The product does not meet the requirements of the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 2016.

"We recommend owners stop using this product immediately. Contact the distributor you purchased from to request redress."

The fake Airwrap has been removed from Ebay by the site.
