Menorah hazard

THE president of Manchester's Jewish Representative Council has warned of the danger of windowsill menorahs - and she is right.

But passing through the Jewish areas of the city, it seems that few people have heeded her advice.

That and displaying Shabbat candles near drapes, or even leaving them burning when everyone has gone to bed, can be asking for trouble.

Do we have to wait for a fire tragedy before anyone realises the potential danger?
