Britain is set to review its energy links with France after the country threatened to cut off Jersey’s power supply in a row over fishing rights. A senior Whitehall source described France’s actions as “outrageous” and said the UK would have to take a more cautious view of France as an energy partner. It is understood that Britain could seek to route future giant undersea power cable projects towards the Netherlands, which it now views as a more reliable partner than France. A source said France had “weaponised” its electricity exports. Jersey, the self-governing British crown dependency with about 110,000 residents, receives about 95pc of its electricity from France through three undersea cables. It was thrown into turmoil as France responded to the UK’s decision to authorise 41 ships to fish in waters off Jersey. The French fisheries ministry claimed the permits came with demands that had not been discussed or authorised.

The creator of Line of Duty has insisted that viewers enjoyed the finale, despite evidence to the contrary. Fans rushed to express their disappointment on Sunday night when the series drew to a downbeat close. Jed Mercurio said that “the perceived levels of dissatisfaction have been exaggerated in the echo chamber of social media”, and claimed that the BBC’s audience research was more positive. However, the research showed that the finale was the least popular episode of the series. After posting the research findings on Twitter, he was confronted by viewers who maintained that the ending had been a letdown, with lowly Det Supt Ian Buckells unmasked as the corrupt “fourth man” linked to a string of murders. In his first comments on the criticism since Sunday’s episode was broadcast, Mr Mercurio said: “No one disputes the Line of Duty finale divided social media opinion but the audience research so far shows a far less extreme picture.
