The prices of goods and services bought by U.K. households fell 0.1 percent in October from a year ago, in line with analysts’ forecasts.
The consumer price index (CPI) fell 0.1 percent in October from the same period last year, according to figures from the Office of National Statistics (ONS).
This is the same rate of inflation as seen in the year to September due to a smaller than usual rise in clothing prices and a fall in motor fuel prices.
The latest figure continues the trend of negligible inflation that the U.K. has experienced since the start of 2015 according to the ONS.
