In addition, the Bank of England's chief economist, Andy Haldane, said last week it needed to "look seriously" at the possibility of raising interest rates to counter the recent pick-up in inflation, BBC said.

Peter Dixon, an economist at Commerzbank, was quoted by the BBC as saying: "It's all building up a pattern here that says the economy is clearly losing momentum".
"The sector is now set to grow by 2 percent in the second quarter - we haven't seen anything like this since 2010", Bankhaus Lampe economist Alexander Krueger said.

Data published on Thursday had shown strong foreign demand raised industrial orders in May, though the increase was less pronounced than expected.

The deficit including trade-in services widened by £1bn to £3.1bn in May, despite a pick-up in export volumes.
