ITV West Country coverage of Hot Drinks Harm film

Wednesday, 1 June 2011

The Hot Drinks Harm film was made by North Bristol NHS Trust to highlight the risks of tea and coffee scalds on children.

Two children a day are brought into Frenchay Hospital with major burns caused by hot drinks.

Burns injuries from tea or coffee account for 60 per cent of admissions to the South West UK Children's Burn Centre at Frenchay.

The hospital's burns team wanted to raise awareness of the problem of having hot drinks around small children who can pull cups from tables or kitchen counters. 

Watch the Hot Drinks Harm film in full.
