Hundreds of people living in new build social housing in Bedford, St Neots and Peterborough are complaining that - so called - 'Eco friendly' heating is forcing them into debt.

248 homes have been fitted with an electric heating system which pumps air around the house. The manufacturer says it works fine, but some residents say they're being forced to use their immersion heating too - costing hundreds of pounds a month.
