Consumers have an average of 17 plastic bags stored at home while more than half support retailers charging for them, according to a Which? survey.

The poll by the watchdog found 56% of consumers in England and Scotland support a 5p charge for bags but, among those opposed to a charge, 70% think they already pay enough for their shopping and 45% think they should be entitled to free bags.
