The IMF under-estimated growth for the UK, its managing director has said.
Speaking on the Andrew Marr Show, Christine Lagarde said: "The confidence building that has resulted from the economic policies of the government has surprised many of us".
She added: "Export is lagging behind a little bit, but ...consumption and investment are fuelling growth".
