Ed Miliband warned energy companies today not to set their faces against his plans for a gas and electricity price freeze amid claims that the policy could lead to blackouts.

In a letter to the "Big Six" power firms, Mr Miliband warned that if suppliers refused to work with an incoming Labour government to keep prices down, they risked being seen by consumers as "part of the problem, not part of the solution".
