OAP death due to 'safe' wheat bag; INQUEST.

AN OAP died after a wheat bag used to warm her bed was overheated in a microwave, an inquest heard yesterday.

Doreen Ghiloni, 82, used it as a hot water bottle but it smouldered, filling her home with smoke.

A neighbour helped rescue her in Leeds on May 22 last year, but she died later in hospital.

Her family bought the bag as they thought it safer than a hot water bottle.

Coroner David Hinchliff said he would write to safety chiefs to highlight the lack of instructions on the wheat bags.
