UK economic growth revised downwards
The UK economy expanded by less than previously thought in the last three months of 2017, official figures say.
GDP grew by 0.4% in the October-to-December period, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
An earlier estimate showed a 0.5% expansion in the three months to December.
In 2017 as a whole, the economy grew by 1.7%, also slightly lower than previously thought and the weakest since 2012.
The ONS had previously estimated that the economy grew by 1.8% last year.
The statistics body said that household spending grew by 1.8% last year, also the slowest annual rate since 2012, partly because of the higher prices faced by consumers.
