Chancellor Jeremy Hunt has said people should cut their energy use to stop the UK being "blackmailed" by people like Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Mr Hunt said "in the end everyone is going to have to take responsibility for their energy bills" and consider how to cut their consumption.

The government has extended support with energy bills until April 2024, but at a less generous level than now.

It has set out a "national ambition" to cut energy use by 15% by 2030.

Appearing in front of the Commons Treasury Committee, the chancellor said households could save themselves around £500 in the years to come if they hit that target and people "need to change their behaviour".
