Excessive gas meter reading

Just received our gas bill for the last quarter, and it's a shocker. It shows usage of an incredible 913 units, bringing our gas bill to £450. This compares with average usage of 60 units per quarter over the last year (approx £40 per qtr)since we moved to our 1 bedroom flat and there has been no fundamental change to our usage patterns.
How does one explain this 15 fold spike in gas usage? We are checking the gas meter for faults by taking regular readings over the next 7 days. So far, the reading indicates 7 units used over the last 10 days, projecting quarterly usage of 60 units. If the meter is not faulty, what other causes could exist for the excessive reading? And what should we do? Thanks..
