A popular St Albans restaurant will be plunged into darkness as part of a stunt to raise awareness of global warming.

Diners in Bill’s will be eating by candlelight for an hour from 8.30pm on Saturday, in aid of the World Wide Fund’s Earth Hour.

The initiative has been set up to remind people of the environmental issues threatening our planet.

Bill’s CEO Duncan Garood said: “It is really important to us that all of our restaurants got involved in Earth Hour.

“We’ve been working hard to make our business as sustainable as possible.

The restaurant also stopped providing plastic straws in February.
