Millions of families are to face crippling energy bills after one supplier revealed massive price rises yesterday.
Scottish PowerÂ revealed electricity charges will jump 10% and gas by a staggering 19% on August 1 â€“ an increase for some of almost Â£200.
The company, which made Â£1.15billion profit last year, blamed the move on rising wholesale energy costs which have jumped 30% in the past year.
Raymond Jack, Scottish Power's UK retail director, said: â€œWe understand times are difficult for many people and we have done what we can to absorb these additional costs for as long as possible.â€
