Energy crisis on scale of pandemic – Martin Lewis
The situation with energy bills is “a national crisis” on the scale of the Covid pandemic, Martin Lewis has said.
The consumer expert told the BBC support needed to double to make up for the huge expected rise in bills.
Government said it had “continually taken action to help households”.
It comes as a survey by comparison site Uswitch suggested many people are falling behind on energy payments. Many with total debt owed three times higher than in September last year.
Almost a quarter of households owe £206 on average, according to the survey of 2,000 people.
Uswitch advised people falling into debt to speak to their provider to work out a more affordable payment plan.
