A CHIP pan amnesty saw residents hand in their dangerous open fryers for safer and healthier versions.

The trade off organised by Golden Gates Housing Trust (GGHT) and backed by Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service and Warrington’s public health team saw homes in Bewsey, Dallam, Orford and Longford targeted.

Over two days more than 60 new healthier air fryers and deep fat fryers were swapped and given out.

GGHT chairman Roy Smith said: “Here at GGHT we are committed to making our homes safer and healthier. By residents swapping their old unsafe chip pan for a new deep fat fryer or air fryer is one way we are achieving this.”
