A BT customer has had a letter of apology and a refund after he resorted to putting a video of his complaints on an internet site. Warwick resident Patrick Askins' troubles began when an extra £90 was added to his phone bill. After six months of calling the company the problem was not resolved so he decided to give up and pay, but put a video recording his despair on YouTube.

Beckie Williams, 26, who is founder of Facebook group Busts 4 Justice and a 30G herself, said she took the step after efforts as customers hit a brick wall. Protesters want Marks & Spencer to introduce a "one price fits all" policy and end its "unfair" practice of charging an extra £2 on bras above a DD cup.
