The Bank of England has left interest rates unchanged at 0.5% and made no change to its programme of quantitative easing, as had been widely expected.
The decision came as no surprise as the Bank has said it will not consider a rate rise until the unemployment rate falls below 7%.
The focus will now switch to the Bank’s latest inflation report, due next week.
Analysts will examine the report for indications on how strongly the Bank thinks the UK economy is recovering.
