Boris Johnson has said the government’s £21 billion emergency support package is a “big bazooka” which should get the country through until energy prices begin to abate.

The prime minister admitted, however, that it won’t “fix everything” for everyone immediately.

Speaking during a visit to Stockton-on-Tees, he acknowledged there was a “bumpy time” ahead for the UK.

“It’s a big bazooka,” Mr Johnson said of the package.

“I’m not going to pretend that this is going to fix everything for everybody immediately, there are still going to be pressures.”
