MP Ed Miliband is hosting an ‘energy summit’ in Mexborough – and is encouraging residents to come along.

It will take place on Friday (December 13) from 12.30pm at the Resource Centre on Dolcliffe Road. The event is open to people living in all parts of the Labour leader’s Doncaster North constituency.

The MP wants to hear people’s experiences of rising energy prices and discuss what needs to be done to make sure energy is affordable and available for the long-term.

Mr Miliband launched Labour’s plan to reform Britain’s electricity and gas market last month.

He said: “I know how people in Doncaster are struggling with the rising cost of living. “Many people I speak to are worried about their energy bills, and are having to make a choice between heating their homes or buying food. We need to reform the energy market so it works for everyone and that’s why I’m holding this event.”
