Energy price rises could lead to increase in fuel poverty
Rising fuel bills may force a quarter of homes to turn off their heating at some point next winter, a price comparison site claims.
Uswitch says that last winter, an estimated 20% of people it surveyed had regularly turned off their heating.
It predicts that with fuel tariffs expected to rise, the number will be higher this year, as Brian Milligan reports.
