Fast-build house made from waste plastic for disaster zones

A team of architects and inventors from Somerset has designed a house which can be built out of plastic rubbish.

The idea is for it to be used in disaster zones where people have lost their property.

It can be built in a matter of hours, and will be presented to aid agencies across the world at a conference in Brussels.

Nick Stillwell, of Protomax, designed the plastic boards and invented the machine which makes them.
