Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls claims the UK recovery has stalled and blamed Conservatives making cuts too quickly leading to people reining in their spending.

He said: "People are pulling in their horns because they are fearful about the future."

His comments came as British economy suffered a shock contraction of 0.5% in the last three months of 2010.
