Planning orders eco-home demolition


A builder has been told to demolish an eco-friendly home after planning officers realised he had been living there without permission.

Jim Wallis's home at Sladbrook near Gloucester is green and cheap, costing just £7,000 to build from a straw based material.

Robin Punt reports.
