Councils go collective to help with energy bills

With spring just around the corner many people will be glad to see the back of a pretty chilly winter, and especially those who are struggling to pay their energy bills.

With this in mind more and more councils in our region are doing their bit to help people. One example is a free service which asks people to join a collective bargaining group, then goes straight to energy suppliers on people's behalf to get a better deal. The average saving is £150 a year.

ITV News Anglia's Luke Farrington has been seeing if people are getting value for money.

For more information on the scheme featured in Luke's piece you can go to the Norfolk Big Switch and Save website.
