Raymond Edgell and his wife Sandra decided to get a smart meter fitted last August.

Their old gas and electricity meters in their home in Harefield, near Uxbridge, were in a cupboard under the stairs. And the couple — who are both in their 70s — were increasingly finding it a pain to take regular meter readings.

The new 'smart' device promised to send readings to their supplier, Scottish Power, automatically and ensure their bills would always be accurate.

Even better, the couple would receive a gadget with a screen that would show exactly how much power they were using each day.

But seven months later, the device doesn't work. In fact, it never has. Raymond, 78, a retired postman, estimates that he's tried to call Scottish Power 150 times over the intervening months to no avail.
