Notes and briefings

The December issue of Asda Magazine includes a festive planner with tips for Christmas on pages 10-11.

One of these tips suggested spraying your Christmas tree with hairspray to “glue” the needles together to stop them dropping on the floor.

We recognise this is a bad idea and would urge people NOT to spray their Christmas trees with hairspray as this poses a fire risk.

We apologise for the error.
