Five bosses at British Gas owner Centrica shared a £16.4million pay bonanza last year as bills soared for domestic customers.
Just weeks after householders were told their bills would jump by £70 a year, the directors enjoyed a 6 per cent rise in their pay packages.
Last night unions said the payouts, coming after inflation-busting price rises, were ‘insensitive beyond belief’.
In addition, British Gas chief Phil Bentley will walk away with a nest-egg worth more than £10million when he steps down in June, in addition to a £5.4million pension pot.
