Climate change ministers and officials spent £1.5 million on flights in two years with £250,000 of the bill racked up on domestic journeys, research has found.

As well as tickets to far flung locations, the Department of Energy and Climate Change (Decc) team regularly booked seats between London and Aberdeen, where its North Sea oil and gas inspectors work. Flights from London to Manchester and Glasgow and between Aberdeen and Norwich, Southampton and Humberside were also recorded.
