UK economy has grown by 0.5%
The UK economy grew by 0.5% in the third quarter of 2011, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
The growth in the July-to-September period compared with a 0.1% expansion in gross domestic product (GDP) in the previous quarter.
But analysts said growth in the second quarter of the year had been dampened by one-off factors.
As a result, the third-quarter figures should not be interpreted as a big economic rebound, they added.
