Domestic energy bills in the UK could rise by 60% by 2016-17, the energy regulator has warned.

However, this would be the "spike" in bills, with prices estimated to rise between 14% and 25% above inflation by 2020, the Ofgem report explains.

Ofgem chief executive Alistair Buchanan said the bad news for consumers was that prices were going to rise.
