The consumer prices index is down 0.2 per cent from 5 per cent in October. The retail prices index fell to 5.2 per cent, from 5.4 per cent in October.

The ONS says the largest downward pressures to the change in CPI annual inflation between October and November came from food, petrol, clothing and furniture, household equipment & maintenance, it says the largest upward pressures came from domestic heating and off sales of alcohol.

The Bank of England’s target rate for CPI is 2 per cent.
