MP's green plea.

PEOPLE in the North East can save about pounds 90m in energy costs and reduce carbon emissions every year by taking more control over their energy usage.

That's according to a campaign run by the Energy Saving Trust which is backed by local MP Dave Anderson.

The Blaydon MP said: "We can all cut our bills by taking three energy saving steps. Insulating cavity walls and lofts up to 270mm, replacing old fashioned bulbs with compact fluorescent light bulbs and turning appliances off would save hundreds and cut carbon emissions equivalent to taking 150,000 cars off North East roads."

He added: "People can kill two birds with one stone - save money and tackle climate change as individuals." For further details, call free and impartial advice centre 0800 512 012.
