Nearly 500,000 face winter energy price rise


Nearly 500,000 people in Wales could see their energy prices rise again this winter.

British Gas has announced a 6% increase in its gas and electricity prices from next month. Swalec has already announced a 9% rise.

The changes could see the average dual fuel customer paying nearly £100 more a year at a time when many family budgets are already stretched.
