In this week’s BBC News Magazine, our experts explore how mould and moulding can be devastating for people living in new homes and how the Government and local authorities can prevent them.
The story was produced in collaboration with the UK Government’s Joint National Mould and Mould Advisory Group (JNMAG) and the UK Office of National Statistics (ONS).
The programme is a collaboration between the BBC, BBC Radio 4, and the National Melling Programme and Research Unit (NMPRU).
