The number of council homes Oxford City Council will be able to insulate has fallen by more than half after an energy company pulled out of a deal.

British Gas was going to contribute £650,000 towards to insulation of about 120 council homes in the city.

But the council has said the company has now changed its policy on the minimum project size it is prepared to fund and it has now pulled out, meaning only 50 homes will be insulated – paid for by the council.
