Campaign group Home Heat Helpline reports that as many as 5,400 households in the area could benefit from government funding to help people stay heat their homes in the winter.

MP for Poplar and Limehouse Jim Fitzpatrick is encouraging people to check what help is available to them.

Those households eligible for the scheme receive help equivalent to around £160.
