AT least 22 households in East Lancashire still watch TV on a black-and-white set .

Latest figures released by TV Licensing show that 106 locations across the county had not made the switch to colour TVs.

Fifteen of these were in Blackburn, a further nine were in Burnley and seven are in Nelson.

And at least 24 were recorded in Preston and seven in Southport.

TV Licensing officials have confirmed that they are unable to release figures for any areas which have five or less black and white licences.

Jason Hill, of TV Licensing, said: "Over half of the UK's TVs now connect to the internet, so it's interesting more than 7,000 households still choose to watch their favourite shows on a black and white telly."

The cost of a black and white TV licence is £50.50, whereas a colour one is £150.50.
