  7. 'Overheating' homes warning by university

    BBC Local Live

    Researchers from the University of Loughborough have warned there's a growing risk of modern homes becoming unhealthily warm during the summer months.

    Experts involved in a new study say the problem is a result of climate change and newer, better insulated homes.

    University of Lougborough research

    Professor Kevin Lomas, from the university, told the BBC: "UK homes are increasingly tending to overheat in the summertime.

    "We definitely need to continue to insulate our homes to keep people warm and healthy in the winter but we also have to think about what we need to do in the summer - now that our climate is warming - to make sure people are protected from ill health."

    Armed officers are to be deployed at this weekend's Caribbean Carnival in Leicester, police have said.

    The force has been using visibly armed officers at major events on a more regular basis over the past few months in response to terror attacks earlier this year.
