British Gas is reportedly planning to announce price rises of as much as 20 per cent, adding more than £100 to the typical monthly bill.

The rise would follow a 19 per cent rise in gas prices announced by Scottish Power as energy companies pass on the soaring cost of wholesale gas to the consumer.

The rises will hit households already struggling with rising living costs and higher taxes.
