An e-bike fire in Shepherd's Bush

E-bikes and e-scooters are becoming increasingly popular.

Most are powered by lithium-ion batteries which can be charged in the home.

It is important to charge e-bikes and e-scooters safely to avoid a risk of a fire starting and putting your families and homes at risk.

Please visit our safety section on e-bikes and e-scooters for advice on charging, storage, buying and damage and disposal.
