The company, which is the largest seller of patio heaters in the UK - has said that once its seasonal stock runs out this year, it will not restock them.

Wyevale chairman, Jim Hodkinson, announced a similar decision early last year.

The Kingfisher-owned company is the largest home improvement retailer to make this radical commitment.

B&Q says it is acting on a recent survey in which 64% of its customers considered green credentials important when they are buying products.
