Williams starting problem

This morning my clio wouldnt start. You could hear the solenoid clicking and the revs were rising on the revcounter but it wouldnt start up. Eventually got it going by bump starting it. Any ideas? When I got to work I tried and it started first time. About a week ago the battery light randomly flashed at me for a bit on the dual carriage way but hasnt done it since could they be related? Im going to get the battery checked at lunch.

sounds like a charging problem..

if the voltage drops too low on cranking you get the symptoms you describe.

probably a duff alternator or battery only.
