X-Ray - Series 8 - Episode 18

Wales's best Wales's best consumer stories, with Lucy and Rhodri Owen. More than half of Welsh homes have a tumble dryer but these useful appliances are responsible for dozens of fires each year. Rhodri Owen meets the Williams family from Prestatyn whose home was badly damaged by a blaze and gives tips to X-Ray viewers on how to prevent similar accidents. We meet two men called Paul who've never met each other but both use the same e-mail provider, Virgin Media. Lucy Owen looks into a worrying security breach which allowed one Paul to access the other Paul's personal information and credit card details. There's more from the X-Ray 100 - a group of keen viewers recruited from right across Wales who have agreed to try, test and tackle consumer issues. Rhodri Owen meets the Petts family from Pentyrch near Cardiff. Mum Ellen and dad Magnus both work full time and with two young children they rely on their two cars. X-Ray persuades them to give up one set of wheels for a week - how will they get on? If the pay packet from your day job needs a boost would you consider taking on a second job to top up your income? Lucy Owen meets some willing workers who've found unusual ways to earn extra cash while having fun.
