'House of the future' is plastic


Old TV sets, wiring cases and general household waste are being turned into what a Swansea-based company hopes will be the "house of the future".

Affresol has developed technology to build low carbon houses from plastic and minerals extracted from recycled rubbish.

Wyre Davies spoke to Ian McPherson from Affresol and took a tour of the house.
