Some small business owners say they have started to notice an improvement in the state of the economy.

The latest figures looking at how much the UK has produced show the UK economy grew by 0.6% in the three months to June.

Lyndsey Mayne runs a balloon and wedding decoration business in Morecambe.

She took on the firm last year and says initially sales were slow but in the last few months things have begun to improve

"It's really picked up. We've got bookings into next year. Compared to last year, we didn't have anything booked in," she said.

"It's a relief to see people are wanting to book their weddings and spend money."
