Fuel Poverty for the Scots

 Scottish Power chief executive, Keith Anderson, said families would find it "extremely difficult" as fuel prices are set to rise again.

Anderson said: "The average wage in Scotland is somewhere between £31,000 and £32,000. If the energy price goes to £2,900, that means every person on an average salary will be defined as being in fuel poverty."

He added: "That is a horrific statistic and that shows you this isn't an issue that is just affecting poor people, it's not an issue just affecting people on benefits. This issue will hurt and be extremely difficult for people on an average salary."
