British Gas has said its energy price rises are 'fair'

British Gas has announced it is to raise energy prices.

Gas bills will go up by an average of 18% and electricity by an average of 16% from the middle of August.

It will mean the average dual fuel energy bill will go up by £190 per year.

Ian Peters, managing director for energy at British Gas, said the increases were fair.
