UK economy grew faster than expected in 2013

UK gross domestic product grew by an estimated 1.9% this year, strengthening the picture of a rebounding economy.

GDP expansion was previously thought to be 1.5% compared to 2012. The Office for National Statistics also confirmed that the economy expanded by 0.8% in the second quarter. 

However, the current account deficit shot up from £6.2 billlion to £20.7 billion between the second and third quarter, while net public sector borrowing last month was £0.9 billion higher than in November 2012.
