The supermarket chain Tesco has recalled two types of Christmas lights which they fear may be faulty.

Customers are asked to return the Tesco 100 indoor multi-function Red Berry lights, model number TS 100 4R/FW and the indoor multi-function clear lights, TS 5611 GC.

A Tesco spokesperson said no complaints had been received in Ireland, but there had been a number in the UK.

The problem centres on a capacitor which if faulty could lead to overheating.
