Fury after 5 gas bosses bag £3.2m in bonuses as prices soar

Gas chiefs sparked fury last night by awarding five bosses £3.2million in bonuses – less than three months after jacking-up bills.

The payouts were among a near £16million boardroom bonanza at British Gas owner Centrica last year.

The directors’ windfall formed part of a £135million bonus pool shared by the firm’s workforce which critics said would infuriate hard-pressed customers.

Biggest winner was Centrica chief executive Sam Laidlaw who took home a package of almost £2.3million last year, including a £941,000 salary and a hefty £900,000 bonus.
