UK economy shrinks between April and June

The UK economy shrank between April and June, official figures show.

The economy contracted by 0.1% in the second quarter of the year, the Office for National Statistics said.

That compares to the first three months of this year when gross domestic product (GDP) - which measures economic activity - grew.

The Bank of England has forecast the UK will fall into recession towards the end of this year and the downturn will last for the entirety of next year.
