Nearly £13million will be spent on cutting carbon emissions from a range of buildings around Suffolk.

Suffolk County Council's cabinet unanimously agreed to invest the money on Tuesday as part of the fight against the climate crisis.

But which buildings in Waveney have been included in the £12.8million energy management plan?
