Protesters march in Birchington against fuel poverty
DOZENS of protesters turned out for a march in Birchington against the spiralling price of petrol and household energy.
The Thanet Against Fuel Poverty campaign was started by independent councillors John Worrow, Jack Cohen and Ian Driver in response to Thanet's position as having the highest level of fuel poverty in Kent. The group hope to lobby MPs for more consistency in petrol prices, as Thanet motorists pay as much as 6p per litre more than those in Canterbury.
Thanet Citizens Advice Bureau manager Ian Driver said: "Fuel poverty is a massive issue in Thanet and we are seeing more cases as prices continue to rise. We have one of the highest levels of excess winter deaths and the choice between heating and eating is a real one for many people."
To help tackle the issue, the Thanet bureau was given a £50,000 grant from the Scottish Energy Trust to fund outreach work to give support to people.
