If you are unhappy with the size of your energy bills you should take advantage of a new scheme, according to Carshalton and Wallington's MP.

Tom Brake is urging his constituents to get involved in the Big London Energy Switch - a scheme which could get thousands of households across the capital a cut in their bills.

The scheme aims to get a sizeable number of people involved and will then encourage suppliers to bid for the customers by offering the best prices.

Mr Brake said: "I am happy to support the Big London Energy Switch campaign and have signed up myself.

"It is very simple, but you will need your gas and electricity bills to hand."

"I hope that many Carshalton and Wallington residents will be able to benefit from this initiative - but they must hurry, the closing date is midnight on the 8th April."
