UK inflation rate remains at 3.1%

The latest figures show the Consumer Prices Index stayed at 3.1 per cent in August.

The soaring price of food, clothes and air travel has kept the rate of inflation unchanged.

The underlying rate of inflation, the Retail Prices Index, fell to 4.7 per cent last month down from 4.8 per cent.

Hugh Pym reports.
