Rural homes 'the most polluting'

Rural homes are often twice as polluting as those in towns and cities, new figures will show.

A Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) study has found that high-occupancy blocks of flats are more fuel efficient.

Detached houses leak heat and people can afford more gadgets, contributing to the greenhouse effect, it suggests.

This will all change when Mum and dad build their eco-house, just you wait and see. (Oh, okay, it won’t really, but their eco-house is going to be excellent in itself.)
