The Government has hailed the Nottingham Evening Post’s campaign to highlight the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning as the “best in Britain”.
The Post’s Silent Killer campaign has kept up the pressure for the last three years in a bid to cut the death toll.
And it looks as though a change in the law to require landlord licensing and compulsory detectors in rented homes could be the result.
Consumer affairs minister Kim Howells said: “The Post campaign has been the most persistent and consistent throughout the United Kingdom.
“If every newspaper and TV and radio station had pursued this with the tenacity that the Evening Post has, I am absolutely convinced that our awareness of carbon monoxide would be much higher.”
