Nearly 26% of Britons have had to go without heating all day to combat the financial pressure caused by increasing energy prices.
That’s according to a new poll by the Mail On Sunday which shows half of the respondents admitted to having cut back on their electricity consumption.
The survey also found that a staggering 70% have made day-to-day changes to their lives because of the rising cost of living.
These changes include turning the lights off, putting on extra clothing and driving less.
A recent report by Cornwall Insight predicted that energy bills will stay above £2,000 for two more years.
