A Belfast man said he got a terrible shock when Electric Ireland presented him with an unexpected domestic bill for over £1,200.

Terry Corr (64) spoke of his anger and worry over the outstanding debt because he believed he had been paying enough by direct debit every month to cover his power consumption.

The freelance creative, who currently works part time, also said he decided to speak out publicly "so that others could potentially avoid the same expensive pitfall".
