UK inflation rate holds steady for March

UK consumer price inflation held steady at 2.8% in March, at its highest level since May last year, the Office for National Statistics said.

Rises in the cost of books, digital cameras and car insurance were offset by lower inflation for petrol and diesel.

The Bank of England has said it expects inflation to exceed 3% later this year.

Hugh Pym reports.
