The Government is to adopt a new definition of fuel poverty but will not meet a target to eradicate the problem by 2016, the Energy Secretary has announced.

The new measure will mean a household is considered "fuel poor" if they are below the poverty line, once energy costs are factored in, and their energy bills are higher than typical.
