People across Suffolk and north Essex have been praised for their hardiness as it has been revealed they wait the longest in the country before switching on their heating.

In a survey commissioned by energy providers E.ON, it has been revealed that tonight, Tuesday October 8, is the night where most households across the country turn on their heating.

But those living in the East of England tend to wait a bit longer, doubling up their layers and cuddling up to stay warm, with research showing they wait for an extra eight days until October 14.
