Network costs 'pushing up energy prices' - Ed Davey

Around 300,000 extra households could be forced into fuel poverty within weeks, according to a lobby group.

The Fuel Poverty Advisory Group has called on Prime Minister David Cameron to tackle what it describes as a "spiralling" problem.

Energy Secretary Ed Davey has said that the government is "doing everything it possibly can" to help people with bills, but wholesale and network costs are out of his control.
