Help is at hand if you are struggling on heating
AS a TV weather presenter who has reported on some the coldest winters experienced in the UK, I am very worried for the many thousands of people who won't be able to heat their homes this year.
Even before this winter's energy price rises increased the average energy bill by 7%, nearly two-thirds (65%) of people on low incomes surveyed by charity Turn2us said they were unsure whether they could afford heating and electricity without enduring financial hardship this winter.
With recent estimates suggesting that 300,000 more homes will be pushed into fuel poverty this winter, we are urging people to see what help is available as a first port of call if affording bills becomes difficult.
