The "false" start to the winter saw energy usage surge by 65% over the weekend as householders turned on the central heating, a supplier has reported.

Npower has speculated that householders have been turning on the heating for short periods because they are experiencing a "faux winter", which feels colder than it really is because England has enjoyed such a hot summer.
