Confidence among British consumers fell in November to its lowest level since just after voters decided in June to leave the European Union as worries about the economy grew, a survey showed on Wednesday.

That was weaker than a median forecast of -4 in a Reuters poll of economists and the index’s lowest level since July when it touched -12.
