UK Services Sector Grows

The services sector in the UK grew at a faster rate than expected in May.

The Markit/CIPS services purchasing managers' index (PMI) eased slightly to 58.6 in May from 58.7 a month earlier whilst predicting that the economy as a whole would grow by 0.8% in the second quarter of 2014.

That would push the economy past its previous 2008 peak.

A Skipton Business Finance spokesperson said: “The UK economy grew at its fastest pace in more than six years in the first quarter of 2014 and is expected to be among the fastest-growing Western economies.”

Forecasts suggest the economy will expand by about 3% in the year.
