Do you know how we get the detector? Do we have to send a voucher off and pay postage?

If I bought this, I'm worried it would identify the Daily Express as the most toxic thing in my house!

No idea. Just saw it on TV.

I think you've made a mistake with the price of the Express. It's not 5p. Needs correcting.

I'm sending someone else to the shop to buy it for me.

Ha! You were right actually. Saw the big 5p on top left, but it's 5p cheaper than Daily Mail.

55p for a £29.99 Carbon Monoxide alarm is still an outstanding offer. Bring on tomorrow.

If I have read the front page correctly the price of the paper is 55p, (shown on the right side of the header) and is 5p cheaper than the Daily Mail (Shown on the left side of the paper with the 5p shown larger than most other text on the page and surrounded by a red circle)

My guess is that there will be P&P costs involved.

I'll go for £6.99.

If your wife can smell gas then I'd do 2 things:

1. Check no one is suffering from excess flatulence in your household.
2. Ring this emergency number: britishgas.co.uk/hel…tml

looks like it says something like 'on-line subscription' ?

if you can smell gas you DONT need one of these as this is a carbon monoxide alarm. Carbon monoxide is a colourless, odourless and tasteless gas, and thus it is not what your partner is smelling!

If you genuinely can smell gas then you need to sort it asap and deal with it tonight!

Well they're not going to supply one for each and every UK household are they?! Jeez! oO

No, but along with the On-line Subscription and registration required, I suspect this isn't a case of spending 55p on the paper and getting a free CO detector.

If you ring that emergency number, someone will come out, "make your installation safe" (this is a euphemism for "disconnect the gas") and tell you to get it fixed. Cut out the middleman and get the fire serviced.

We smelt an odour in our house near the meter and something on it needed changing as there was a very small leak from it.

this doesn't detect gas.. get a gas alarm

Subscription sounds as if it will be for their app. If the "free" co2 alarm is dependant on a years subscription then its £64
