Inflation Falls More Than Expected - Presented by: The Aol. On Network

The annual rate of UK inflation rate fell more than expected in July as the cost of clothing, footwear, food and non-alcoholic drinks eased. The Office for National Statistics said Consumer Price Index inflation fell to 1.6% from 1.9% a month earlier. But CPI remains well above average wages which grew by just 0.6% in the three months to June. It means the Bank of England remains under little pressure to raise interest rates in order to keep inflation at or below its target rate of 2%.
