Extreme weather 'biggest threat' to UK heritage

Flooding, wildfires and extreme weather threaten the future of nearly three-quarters of sites managed by the National Trust, a new report says.
The charity says climate change is "the single biggest threat" facing its 28,500 historic homes, 250,000 hectares of land and 780 miles of coastline.
In Monday's report, the trust called on the UK government to do more to help organisations adapt to climate change.
The government said it had a five-year plan to boost the country's resilience.
