Despite a big profit rise SSE is sending out a warning that it is "highly likely" bills will go up.
It remains Britain's biggest clothing retailer and saw £10 billion in turnover and group sales rise in tough times. So what is wrong at M&S?
A fall in inflation may prove to be merely temporary. But it is a welcome boost to the incoming Governor of the Bank of England Mark Carney.
The rate of consumer price index inflation fell to 2.4% in April, from 2.8% in March, official figures showed today.
It is the first time inflation has slowed since Autumn 2012.
We requested your response to Marks & Spencer's fall profits on our Facebook page, asking has the once High Street favourite lost its shine?
Many of the responses suggested the retailer's pricing was deterring customers.
Clive Templar said "items are far too expensive", while Steve Smith urged the shop to "lower your prices".
It seems few of you were surprised that M&S would suffer a significant slump in clothing sales, while seeing food sales rise.
"Foods nice," Vanessa Ashton said, but added that she "can get nicer, cheaper, good fitting clothes from lots of other stores!"
Margaret Fenwick agreed that the firm had lost clothing customers to other shops, blaming "cheaper quality and inferior goods".
Louise Linter said she preferred M&S when it "sold more classic styles".
However, there was still support for the traditional retailer.
Colin Smith said he would definitely continue to shop at a "great British institution" while Simon Jobson said: "I do love the food there."
Mr Buckles had played a key part in creating the G4S business eight years earlier, with the merger of Securicor and the security businesses of Group 4 Falck.
The 52-year-old, who is retiring, will be replaced on June 1 by Ashley Almanza, who has held senior roles at oil and gas group BG Group.
"It does not use revolving loans from foreign subsidiaries to fund its domestic operations; it does not hold money on a Caribbean island; and it does not have a bank account in the Cayman Islands."
Apple CEO Tim Cook is set to testify and explain the company's tax strategy at a subcommittee hearing today.
The technology giant has avoided paying billions of dollars in US taxes by using "offshore entities", according to the report.
"Apple sought the Holy Grail of tax avoidance. It has created offshore entities holding tens of billions of dollars, while claiming to be tax resident nowhere."
Committee member and former Republican candidate for the US Presidency John McCain added: "While Apple claims to be the biggest US corporate taxpayer, it is also among America's largest tax avoiders."
Nick Buckles, the chief executive of security company G4S, is to step down from his post at the end of this month.
Mr Buckles, a former postman, had kept his job despite the resignation of two other key company directors in the wake of last summer's botched Olympics contract.
The security shambles was estimated to have cost the firm £70 million.
Full-year profits at Marks & Spencer fell to £665 million, their lowest level in four years, the retailer announced.
Marks & Spencer sales grew by 1.3% in a "challenging market" in the year to March 2013, the company announced.
But like-for-like UK sales fell by 1%, with general merchandise down 4.1%.
Their food division did better, improving by 1.7%.
Apple said in a comment posted online that it does not use "tax gimmicks." It said the existence of its subsidiary 'Apple Operations International' in Ireland does not reduce Apple's US tax liability and the company will pay more than $7 billion in US taxes in 2013.
In submitted testimony ahead of the hearing, Apple said any tax reform should favour lower corporate income tax rates regardless of revenue, eliminate tax expenditures and implement a "reasonable tax on foreign earnings that allows free movement of capital back to the US."
"Apple recognizes these and other improvements in the US corporate tax system may increase the company's taxes," it said.
Apple has been accused of employing a group of affiliate companies located in Ireland to avoid paying billions of dollars in US income taxes, a Senate investigation has alleged.
According to the report, Apple is holding around $102 billion of its $145 billion in cash overseas, and an Irish subsidiary that earned $22 billion in 2011 paid only $10 million in taxes.
But the committee said there was no indication Apple had done anything illegal. Many other multinational corporations use similar tax techniques to avoid paying US income taxes on profits they make overseas.
But the report found that Apple uses a unique twist, and lawmakers are raising questions about loopholes in the US tax code.
