Leeds students handed £19m utilities bill


    A house of students in Leeds were left flabbergasted when they were sent a utilities bill for more than £19 million.

    The University of Leeds students had sent an incorrect meter reading to their supplier. They could not get in touch with the company and became so worried they set up a fundraising page.

    Huddle Utilities have since corrected the mistake and issued a new bill.

    The mistake apparently came down to a missed decimal point.
