Energy bosses to be grilled by MPs over Christmas outages

December saw hundreds of thousands of homes without power as severe weather hit networks. Now MPs want to question energy bosses over the disruption.

On 21 January they'll be called before the Energy and Climate Change Committee.

Committee chair Tim Yeo MP said that they "will be questioning the distribution companies responsible and asking them to explain why there were delays in restoring power to thousands of customers who were cut off over Christmas."
