The UK economy grew an estimated 0.6% in the three months to June, official figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) show, with output growing in all of the construction, manufacturing, services and agriculture.

The Chancellor George Osborne says it shows the economy is "on the mend", but despite the relatively strong figure, analysts say the outlook for the rest of the year remains uncertain.

Here shadow chancellor Ed Balls talks Newsnight's Anita Anand about the figures, and what he would do differently.
