Energy crisis campaigners have projected scenes of people struggling with fuel poverty on to Rishi Sunak’s North Yorkshire mansion on the eve of the autumn statement.

Activists from Greenpeace parked a van outside the prime minister’s £1.5m constituency home and used it to beam the trailer of a hard-hitting documentary on to the facade of the Georgian manor house.

Darlington and Stockton Times:

It reminds Sunak that energy companies are set to make £170bn in excess profits over the next two years – but that it would cost “just” £55bn to insulate all homes in the UK, which are some of the coldest and draughtiest in western Europe.

“Unless the government steps in, we will suffer every winter, while companies get richer,” the film says. The trailer was projected on to the front of the Grade II-listed house near Northallerton in North Yorkshire as night fell on Wednesday.

The PM was at the G20 meeting of world leaders in Bali at the time. His wife and daughters were not believed to be in the house during the stunt.

Campaigners were able to play the nine-minute film twice without any response from anyone inside, according to The Guardian.
