The lights 'WILL' stay on this winter: Business Secretary claims Britain will avoid energy emergency in coming months despite warnings of 'black swan event' as Russia is accused of rigging gas prices

Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng has claimed Britain will avoid an energy emergency in the coming months despite warnings of a 'black swan event' after Russia was accused of rigging gas prices.

Kwarteng said he did 'not expect supply emergencies this winter' as he prepared for talks with chief executives of the UK's largest energy suppliers and operators to discuss the global gas situation today.

It comes amid warnings of a 'black swan event', an unpredictable episode with often severe consequences, after global gas prices surged due to high global demand, maintenance issues and lower solar and wind energy output.
