25 October 2013 Last updated at 10:13 BST

Joe Grice from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) has given a breakdown of the latest GDP figures, which suggest UK economic output rose by 0.8% between July and September.

He said all the main sectors had grown, with the economy 2.5% below the pre-recession peak: "Nearly two-thirds of the fall in output has now been recovered."

But, he added, not all sectors had recovered evenly: "Manufacturing remains 8.9% lower than its pre-recession peak and construction 12.5% lower."
