Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council are alerting caravan owners and local residents of the danger of carbon monoxide poisoning from gas cookers, Ballymoney and Moyle Times has reported.
It comes after findings by the coroner in the deaths of Mr and Mrs O’Reilly, who died in a caravan park in Newcastle, County Down on 21 January.
Coroner Mr Lecky found that the O’Reillys lost their lives to carbon monoxide poisoning as a result of a malfunctioning cooker.
The council has been asked to ensure that a safety message regarding certain gas cookers and general carbon monoxide safety is followed up within caravan parks located in the borough.
Site operators have been contacted and asked to assist in this regard.
Caravan owners should be aware that any modifications to any gas appliances should only be undertaken by a Gas Safe-registered engineer and all gas appliances should be serviced by such an engineer on an annual basis.
