UK economy: Small businesses help boost growth

The UK economy has grown for the fifth consecutive quarter, and is now just below the level it was before the recession began in 2008.

The figures are fuelled by strong performances in the service sector, construction and manufacturing - including by small businesses.

One of those thriving is British chocolate manufacturing company Montezuma's, started by two married lawyers.

The BBC's Steph McGovern took a guided tour of their factory with co-founder Helen Pattinson.
