New car sales in UK highest in 10 years

New UK car sales hit a 10-year high in 2014, boosted by confidence in the economic recovery, the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders has said.

In total, 2.47 million new cars were registered last year, up 9% on 2013 and the best annual performance since 2004.

Sales rose each month last year, with December's rise representing the 34th consecutive monthly jump.
