    Some 140.000 UK households without heat or power say two surveys

    “It is unacceptable that so many vulnerable households are being left without heat and light,” said Gillian Guy, the chief executive of Citizens Advice.

    Hundreds of thousands of the poorest families in Britain are going without basic necessities, according to two separate surveys. Citizens Advice said as many as 140,000 households are going without power, as they cannot afford to top up their prepayment meters. And the Living Wage Foundation - which campaigns for fair pay - said many of the poorest parents are skipping meals.
