An MP is urging his constituents to ensure they collect their cold weather payment.
Steve Barclay said the payment was due to low income families and elderly residents living in North East Cambridgeshire.
The cold weather payment was triggered by the Met Office after its Marham weather station recorded sub-zero temperatures for seven consecutive days between January 17 and 23.
Mr Barclay said the postcodes covered were PE12, PE13, PE14, PE38, CB6 and CB7.
The Conservative MP said: “Payment of the £25, which is the set amount payable for each time the temperature falls below zero centigrade for seven days running, should be paid automatically within 12 days of the seventh day.

“However, I am urging those eligible to check they have received payment and am advising those who think they should get the pay-out but haven’t to contact the local JobCentre Plus or Pension Centre.”
