British Gas owner Centrica has hinted at further price rises for hard-pressed customers as it announced profits from its residential arm rose by 3.2% thanks to the freezing spring weather.

Earnings increased to £356 million during the first half of 2013, as the company cashed in on the bitterly cold temperatures after raising tariffs 6% at the end of last year.
