AN MP has shown his support for climate change.

Ellesmere Port and Neston Labour MP Andrew Miller has signed up to the World Wildlife Fund’s (WWF) Earth Hour.

The event takes place on Saturday, March 27, between 8.30am and 9.30pm.

WWF is calling on individuals, businesses, iconic landmarks and local authorities to sign up to switch off their lights for one hour to show they care about people and wildlife threatened by climate change.

The initiative has become bigger than ever, surpassing all previous years’ events, with more than 1,100 cities and towns across the globe switching off their lights.

Mr Miller said: “By signing up and taking part we can all show support for strong international action to tackle climate change and I have urged the parliamentary authorities to ensure that the Palace of Westminster plays its part in this important initiative.”

This year more than 91 countries will take part.
