People died of heart attacks bronchial, strokes and other conditions said the Age Concern a charity. People with respiratory ailments especially elders were vulnerable. "It is a scandal that so many people over 65 are put at risk every winter. More needs to be done for older people so that they can heat their homes adequately without worrying about cost." Said Gordon Lishman director general. ely without worrying about cost."

"Many pensioners still agonise about whether or not to heat their homes in the cold weather. In the world's fourth richest country, this is simply shameful. The £200 winter fuel payment and the basic state pension have both failed to keep pace with rising costs of energy." Said another charity Help age.

"The NHS is helping people, particularly the most vulnerable, to stay healthy during winter. Last year more than 71% of people over 65 received a free flu jab - the highest ever takeup. This year we are ... making flu jabs available to everyone with a chronic condition such as diabetes and asthma, so they will be less vulnerable to flu. Cross-government activity, including winter fuel payments, helps older people lead healthier lives during winter.",Said a Department of Healt h spokeswoman
