A Bromley man hopes to save lives after creating a product that helps people conveniently test their smoke alarms.

The WatchTowerGiraffe is a new concept from inventor Alan Day, of Sandiland Crescent, Bromley.

The giraffe is a handheld probe that allows users to test their smoke alarms every week without having to worry about stepladders or chairs.

Mr Day, 59, said: "It’s been one of my passions making homes safer.

"I’ve always been conscious of how easy it is to protect people - most people think they’re safe, but they’re not."

He described the probe as an item that "has the potential to save lives and a fortune in property damage".

I use the broom handle. It's really a no brainer, like lots of the commenters on here at times.
