UK inflation in record August jump as food and drink prices rise

The Guardian says UK inflation made its biggest jump on record in August amid a rise in food and drink prices, reversing a sharp decline a year earlier during the government’s eat out to help out restaurant discount scheme.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said the consumer prices index measure of annual inflation rose to 3.2% in August, up from 2% in July and the highest rate since March 2012, as the cost of a meal snapped back from a period of steep discounting a year ago.
