Bank of England warns of 'choppy recovery'

Bank of England Governor Mervyn King has warned that although the economic recovery will continue, it will be "choppy".

He added that growth would be slower than expected, partly because of a lack of lending from banks.

He told journalists, "it would be many years before bank balance sheets and fiscal positions return to anything like normal".
