CLAUDIA Winkleman is on the front pages. Her eight-year-old daughter, Matilda, has been taken to  hospital on Friday after her Halloween costume caught alight.

The Strictly Come Dancing presenter has since issued a statement:

“Our daughter was involved in an accident on Friday night while celebrating Halloween. She is having the best care possible and we are hopeful of a full recovery. We would like to thank everyone that has been so supportive and particularly the NHS doctors, nurses and staff who have been absolutely incredible. We would like to take this opportunity to remind anyone taking part in fireworks parties or Guy Fawkes celebrations to be vigilant about the dangers of candles, open fires and fireworks and to be please have the appropriate safety measures in place and to hand.”

Such are the facts. But what about the sensation?

All tabloids agree that it is a “horror”.

The Star  has more sensational news:

Claudia Winkleman’s daughter ‘catches fire’ in freak Halloween accident

She caught fire?

In the Mirror  that “freak accident” becomes something that could happen to any child.

Sheila Merrill of the RoSPA tells how we can be safe:

In many cases, these fancy dress outfits don’t fit the person well, and have multiple layers, meaning kids can trip up in them.

Our advice to parents buying any kind of fancy dress – whether it’s costumes, wigs or masks – is that they check they carry the CE mark. This means it complies with European legislation, which makes it safer.
