Trussell Trust offering fuel vouchers at Bristol foodbank

The Wiltshire-based Trussell Trust has started offering struggling families fuel coupons from one of its foodbanks in Bristol.

More than 150,000 households across the West are caught in "fuel poverty" and can not pay their gas and electricity bills.

Only people with pre-payment meters will be eligible for the vouchers.

The scheme is funded from a £26m fine levied by the energy regulator OfGem on the energy firm nPower.
