UK CPI inflation rate rises to 5.2% in September

The UK's inflation rate rose in September, with the Consumer Prices Index measure reaching 5.2%, up from 4.5% in August.

An increase in energy costs was behind a large proportion of the rise in the inflation rate, analysts said.

Philip Gooding, a senior statistician from the office for National Statistics, explains the figures.
