A roadshow is being held in Derby today to help people cut hundreds of pounds off their energy bills.

Experts from Derby City Council will be teaming up with the Citizens Advice Bureau to show people how properly insulating their homes or switching their energy provider could save them money.

It's claimed that by taking action, consumers could save up to £625 through insulation, paying by direct debit and by switching tariff or energy supplier.
