Cavity wall insulation damp 'affecting our health'

Inappropriate cavity wall insulation in homes has become "a scandal", a Welsh MP has said.

Arfon MP Hywel Williams claimed millions of homes had the insulation installed by successive government-backed schemes which has led to damp, mould and condensation.

He has called on the UK government to take responsibility for the "dreadful mess".

The UK government said it was committed to ensuring consumers are protected.

Mother-of-three Anna Phillips from Barry, Vale of Glamorgan, said she had insulation in her home removed last year after living with damp for seven years.
