Around a million households in Wales will see energy costs rise from today.

The owners of SWALEC, SSE, announced last month an average hike of 8.2 per cent.

It says that equates to two pounds a week for a typical dual fuel customer.

Wholesale prices and environmental, social and delivery costs are said to be to blame.
