Scottish Power has become the latest energy company to increase its prices.

The energy firm will increase gas and electricity prices by an average of 7% from 3 December.

The company has blamed increased costs for the move, which comes just days after both British Gas and Npower announced price rises.

British Gas customers will see their bills rise by an average 6% from 16 November, which will work out as an £80 annual increase for the average customer.

Meanwhile, Npower customers will see their bills rise by an average of 8.8% for gas and 9.1% for electricity from 26 November.

It means four of the 'Big Six' energy firms have now upped their prices this winter. SSE implemented a 9% rise on gas and electricity today.
