Detectives in E District have launched an investigation into a company who sells electricity saving devices.
Police were made aware of concerns about the device from a consumer who found that the equipment did not provide the promised reductions.
Independent tests on the device, which is claimed to reduce electricity bills by 25 percent, found that the device does not function at this level. The tests also found that the make up of the device gave concern from a safety perspective.
