Couple stunned by £57k British Gas bill for one bed home

A couple were stunned to receive an energy bill for their one bedroom house - for £57,000. Katie Coyne, 60, and husband Richard, 64, were told they had a matter of weeks to pay the eye-watering British Gas bill. It said they had racked up the charge on their gas and electric in a single month - despite their entire annual estimate being just £2,150. Richard spend countless tea and lunch breaks trying to get through to a customer services agent - but didn't get through to anybody so kept having to hang up. The couple say they were scared to turn on anything electric in their home in Devizes, Wiltshire for weeks.
