This week Jon Cruddas MP for Dagenham and Rainham has pledged his support for a campaign being led by Electrical Safety First to proper regulate the online sale of electrical goods.

Due to poor regulation of online sales, it is all too easy to unknowingly buy unsafe goods online. Counterfeit, sub-standard and recalled electrical goods can all pose a serious risk and fire hazard. 

 

Last week, Asda proudly launched a dedicated volunteer shopping card to help vulnerable customers and those who are self-isolating and unable to go into store. There are a number of Asda superstores located in and around Dagenham and Rainham that residents can access, and this new scheme seeks to support the most vulnerable along with our key workers.

Recently Jon Cruddas MP for Dagenham and Rainham was contacted by Highways England to confirm that improvements between M25 junction 30 and the A13 are now open to traffic. An extra lane has been added on the A13 between the A126 and junction 30, to increase capacity an alleviate congestion.

The good news for drivers is that the extra capacity offered by this scheme is open in time for Christmas, and should help improve shopping trips to major destinations such as Bluewater and Lakeside.
