More than 20,000 Britons have switched from getting their milk in plastic containers to reusable glass bottles in just four weeks through a grocery delivery scheme.

Sign-ups soared to the Müller-owned Milk & More service, which sees a return to traditional, milkman-style morning deliveries left at your doorstep.
