E.On apologises for Peterborough charity's £78,000 bill

An energy company has apologised after sending a Peterborough charity a gas bill for almost £78,000.

E.On issued the bill in April to Neil McGregor-Paterson, who runs the Realitas Community Arts Centre.

"Our usual bills are £30 a month but we were told they were estimated. They took two readings and I gave them three before they sent this bill," he said.

An E.On spokesman said the company was "truly sorry for the large bill... issued in human error". Mr McGregor-Paterson received the bill after querying an earlier one sent to the charity by E.On, in March.
