Energy bills rising: We ask Mancunians whether they’ve turned the heating on yet this year as energy prices are set to rise again in the new year

  • 6 months ago
Energy bills are set to increase by £94 for millions of households across the UK from January, it has been announced.

Energy regulator Ofgem has revealed its new price cap - which will come into effect on January 1 - and shows bills for the average household are set to increase.

Consumer choice brand Which? says it is highly concerning that millions of households will not be turning on their heating this year, due to the rise in energy bills.

Data from the company shows lower income households and families with children are the most likely to be left in the cold this winter.

We asked people in Manchester if they're concerned about the rise in energy bills and what that means for some people during the cold months.
