Cambridgeshire police have issued a warning to the public about stolen hoverboards which pose a fire risk.
Following a burglary in St Neots on September 20, 66 Smart Balance Wheel Hoverboards were stolen but police say the products were due to be destroyed due to a potential fire risk.
Officers from the force’s burglary team are warning anyone who has bought one of the boards, which has packaging bearing the name “Smart Balance Wheel”, not to use it and contact them.
“These products were due for destruction because of a potential fire risk,” said a spokesman for the burglary squad.
“We are therefore urging members of the public not to buy these items from anywhere other than a reputable retailer. Anyone who believes that they may have already purchased one of these items is urged to stop using it immediately.”
