A rise in consumer spending helped the UK economy grow at its fastest rate in two years, Office for National Statistics figures have confirmed.
Gross domestic product grew 0.8% between April and June for an annual growth rate of 2.6%: a figure unchanged from the ONS's first estimates.
A 1% jump in household expenditure, as well as an acceleration in service sector growth, drove the increase.
In contrast, output from production industries weakened to fall 0.2%.
That compared with growth of 0.8% during the previous month.
