OK, I'm getting a little too wrapped up in this.

"Police community support officer Zally Huseyin, 46, a mother of five, was shocked when she answered the door to a team of colleagues who demanded to search her house.

The mistake happened after infra-red images taken by a police helicopter showed Mrs Huseyin's five-bedroom, £400,000 detached property in Lower Cambourne, Cambridgeshire was glowing white hot."

"The builders denied the insulation was poor and said the house met all required standards.

David Bell, managing director for David Wilson Homes South Midlands, said: "Since being contacted by Mrs Huseyin regarding concerns over the energy efficiency of her home we have conducted additional investigations, including checking the insulation of the property, which found the home complies with all the relevant standards.

"All David Wilson Homes are built to the highest specification and in accordance with all energy efficiency legislation and regulations. Each home undergoes a thorough independent inspection before being occupied."
