£3.6m of Green Deal funding has been handed to Worcestershire - with around 750 homes due to get better insulation.

Worcestershire County Council is celebrating after being one of the country's big winners from a Government funding pot to keep energy bills down.

Last year the Department for Energy and Climate Change invited councils to bid for cash to launch their own insulation projects.

The fund is worth £88 million and large parts of the country have been handed nothing, with just 24 councils successful.

A major project is being prepared to identify where it can be spent and the council estimates 750 properties will benefit.

The cash is set to be farmed out to district councils so they can help administrate the spending.
