UK inflation unexpectedly fell further last month to the lowest level in more than a year, as lower airfares provided some relief for cash-strapped Britons.
The consumer price index dropped from 2.5% in March to 2.4%, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS). Economists had expected the annual rate of growth in prices to remain unchanged.
This decline will be welcomed by consumers under sharp pressure from rising prices since the Brexit vote, when a sudden drop in the value of the pound pushed up the cost of imported goods.
