My Tenant has left big energy debts

Without my knowledge my tenant changed the gas and electricity meters to prepayment meters and he has run up debts of over £700 on the gas and £300 on the electricity. I only found out when I tried to put credit in the meters and it was immediately swallowed up to pay his debt. I cannot contact the tenant as he is not answering his mobile and the forwarding address is false. I now can't re-rent the property until these debts are settled. What can I do?
