Previous Yorkshire Energy customers should visit the Scottish Power website to enter their details as soon as possible.

In an FAQ on their website, Scottish Power said: "It’s quick, simple and secure. Please note, without your Direct Debit details you’ll have to pay for your energy by cash or cheque, which may work out more expensive for you. Once you’ve entered your details, we’ll take care of everything."

Energy supplies will not be cut off for previous customers, Scottish Power confirmed.
