Picture of Primark Christmas candle burning into large flame goes viral

Primark has pulled a risky Christmas candle from sales after a mother-of-three claimed it shot up in three-inch flames as her children slept upstairs.

Jenny Ferneyhough, 33, from Manchester, says the £5 candle she purchased from Primark erupted into massive flames before her eyes on Sunday evening.

With fire across the entire top surface of the pillar, the flames appear to have grown to a height to such an extent they dwarf the remaining half of the candle. I am concerned that it poses a risk to the safety of anyone who owns one, and I have emailed Primark suggesting they recall them.

Jenny said she was lucky that her children were upstairs at the time - adding she was terrified to think about what could have happened if she and husband Evan hadn't spotted it.

Primark has since pulled the product from the shelves to investigate.

"In the meantime, I would be grateful if we could spread the word so that no one is put at risk by this".

Over 500 IIT-Delhi students hired
Another student, Nikhil Chaturvedi, who got an offer with Microsoft in Redmond, US, said he was excited to start the job. IIT-Delhi has decided, as a policy, not to mention high-value packages in its placement information.

A spokesman for the discount chain said: "We take the safety of our customers and quality of our products very seriously".

After lighting the candle for approximately nine hours over two nights, Jenny claims the tree-shaped candle lit up in flames - causing her husband, Evan, 34, to jump to action and tackle the blaze.

A company spokesperson has since said the product is being removed from sale, while the complaint is investigated "as a matter of urgency".

She said: "We were monitoring it but it got to the point where it was unsafe and we thought we should post a picture of it because we thought "this is serious now".

Primark has since withdrawn the festive candle from sales.

The cautionary warnings include never leaving a candle unattended, placing the candle in a draught free area and not burning the candle on or near anything that can catch fire.
