Hi there good evening to you
Ok your symptoms are what I would expect to see from a bad cell (internal of the battery )
Ie: switch off vehicle after driving it and then try to restart it but clicking noise when trying to start indicates battery voltage below 10.5 volts on crank
The fact it started with a jump start from the battety indicates a faulty battery
I would have the battery replaced to resolve this issue
If you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know

Hi there
When you jump starred it was it from the battery as stated or was it under the bonnet at jump points
