Inflation eases as clothes prices drop

[ad_1]

The UK’s rate of inflation eased last month amid falls in the prices of clothes, second-hand cars and toys, according to new official data.

It was down from the 0.7% measurement in January and 0.6% in December.

ONS deputy national statistician for economic statistics Jonathan Athow said: “A fall in clothing prices helped to ease inflation in February, traditionally a month where we would see these prices rise, but the impact of the pandemic has disrupted standard seasonal patterns.

“Elsewhere there were falls in the price of second-hand cars.

”However, prices at the pump rose this month, compared with a fall this time last year.”
