EU seeks to protect vulnerable families from energy crunch

Description

The EU has unveiled a 'tool-box' of measures to protect vulnerable families from the rising price of energy. Member states are being encouraged to offer tax breaks or energy cheques - but France says the plan doesn't go far enough to ensure energy independence. Also in the show - IMF Chief Kristalina Georgieva defends her record after being cleared of an ethics scandal at the World Bank, and shipping ports around the world are facing traffic jams.
