Econ­omy grows

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - BUSINESS -

The UK econ­omy grew by 0.6% dur­ing the third quar­ter, but cracks are be­gin­ning to show as con­sumers cut back on spend­ing.

Growth was pri­mar­ily driven by strong re­tail sales dur­ing the World Cup and a re­cov­ery in con­struc­tion in July. Au­gust and Septem­ber were both flat, con­firm­ing econ­o­mists’ fears that the heat­wave’s boost to the econ­omy faded towards the end of the sum­mer.
