UK economy grew 0.5% in first quarter of 2011.

According to a revised review of UK Economic figures by the Office for National Statistics' (ONS), the UK economy grew by 0.5% in the first three months of the year. They also had positive news for the trade deficit, which had fallen from £11.5bn to £5.7bn, as exports increased and imports decreased.

However, ONS figures showed that business investment declined 7.1% quarter-on-quarter, in its biggest fall for two years.

The manufacturers Organisation EEF said that the 1.1% growth in manufacturing activity during the quarter confirmed that a rebalancing of the economy was slowly taking hold.
