Climate campaigners warn of 'bonfire of green policies'

Climate change campaigners have attacked the Conservative government for what they call a "bonfire of green policies" since the general election.

The criticism comes after the government cut subsidies for onshore wind farms and commercial solar power, stopped the Green Deal household efficiency scheme and abandoned a target for newly-built houses to be carbon neutral.

Amber Rudd, the new energy secretary, brushed off complaints, telling ITV News Political Correspondent Lewis Vaughan-Jones climate change needed to be tackled in a "business-friendly way" and adding her department was "not a green NGO".
