The BBC's Breakfast show today highlighted the tragic case of toddler Emily Warner. The two year old who was found by her father, unconscious and hanging in blinds cords in her bedroom at the families home in Royston, Hertfordshire. Emily's mother appeared on BBC's Breakfast show with a RoSPA representative and highlighted RoSPA's hugely important 'Blind Cord Safety Campaign' which is calling upon UK window blinds retailers and manufacturers to take the incentive and manufacture, distribute and retail blinds to the general public without the looped cords that can cause harm and sometimes fatal injury to children through accidental strangulation.
