ENERGY supplier EDF has announced huge rises to its gas and electricity prices.

The company is hiking gas prices by 22% and electricity by 17%, blaming wholesale energy costs for the increase.

The rise will mean typical customers on a dual fuel tariff will pay £3.97 a week more for their energy.

Eva Eisenschimmel, chief operating officer of EDF Energy customers branch, said that the company has been absorbing some of the extra costs, but now have no choice but to pass on some of the costs to customers.
