12 days of Fabian Christmas: What’s winter got to do with politics?
The most recent figures from the Office of National Statistics show that there were 24,000 extra deaths last winter, the majority of these among older people. Age UK’s Mary Milne looks at how we can tackle cold weather related deaths...
“In the 21st century, you might think that the way we live our lives would no longer be determined by anything as primal as the weather. So it might come as a surprise to be reminded that winter – or more specifically cold weather – is directly responsible for the premature deaths of tens of thousands of older people every year.”
