This winter 85% of households in the UK (that's 23 million households) are planning on rationing their use of gas and electricity in a bid to keep costs down and their heating up. But does that mean you have to cut back on your cuppa, turn off your tumbler or minimise your microwave use?

Our paramedics work tirelessly every day to save lives of the British public, but abuse towards emergency workers is, unbelievably, on the increase, with three separate incidents hitting the headlines in as many days.
Two paramedics who sadly report that abuse from the public is par for the course in their job are Amy Holtom and Natasha Starkey. Their most recent incident was just five days ago, when they received an angry note on their ambulance windscreen - while they were battling to save a man's life - stating "You may be saving lives, but don't park your van in a stupid place and block my drive."
Amy and Natasha join us to tell us how they’ve been spat at, kicked, hit and verbally abused while at work and explain why they believe more needs to be done to protect paramedics while on duty.
