Manufacturing output rose twice as fast as expected in October, suggesting the country's economic recovery remains fairly robust.

UK industrial production rose for the first time in 14 months in April, while an increase in activity at car plants helped manufacturing output improve for the second month in a row.

Output jumped 0.3% from the month before, according to the Office For National Statistics, the first rise since February 2008.

Manufacturing output in November fell at its fastest annual rate  since 1981, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

Output fell 2.9 percent on the month, the biggest fall since which took the annual rate down to -7.4 percent, the weakest since June 1981.
