Derry Girls star Siobhan McSweeney recalls devastating fire caused by plug adapter

Derry Girls star Siobhan McSweeney warns against cube-shaped plug adapters after one caused a devastating fire at her home.

The actress, who plays no-nonsense nun Sister Michael on the hit sitcom, has been living out of a suitcase since the blaze destroyed her home four months ago.

Siobhan described how she got a call from her neighbour, while she was at the theatre, telling her of the unfolding disaster at her central London flat.

By the time the actress arrived home she found the fire brigade already there and a scene of utter devastation.
