Vloggers JK and Charlie conducted their own (non-scientific) test at home using candles and costumes from popular high street stores – the results were quite shocking. Watch the video to see what happens.

Here’s what the retailers had to say about their costumes:

M&S: “We are confident that all our childrenswear meets all the relevant safety regulations and the very high safety standards we set ourselves. Every dress up item is subjected to independent flammability tests under strict laboratory conditions to make sure this is the case.”

Sainsbury’s: “We have looked at every detail of our children’s dress-up range to improve safety. All of our children’s dress-up outfits meet both European toy and British nightwear flammability safety standards. We want to help make sure everyone stays safe this Halloween and to be aware that all clothes are flammable. We are therefore encouraging our customers to buy LED tea lights for their pumpkins, rather than using normal candles.”
