Although gas prices will be held at their current level, the average annual dual fuel bill for a typical household on standard tariff will rise by £76 to £1,120, an increase of 7.3% and the company promised to provide a credit to more than 200,000 vulnerable customers.

Centrica, which lost 377,000 energy consumers in the half, reported revenue of £14.3bn for the first half of the year, a rise of 7% that fed down to a 2% rise in earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation to £1.28bn.
