UK economic growth rebounds in November
The economy grew by 0.3% which was both stronger than expected and an improvement on October.
The Office for National Statistics said the bounce back was led by the services sector, with areas such as retail boosted by Black Friday sales.
While the monthly growth figure was stronger than expected, the ONS figures also showed that in the three months to November, the economy shrank by 0.2%.
Economists predict it will be a close call as to whether the UK can avoid a recession.
