Ed Miliband: 'Economy is bumping along the bottom'
Labour leader Ed Miliband has said that "the government should be disappointed" with the latest GDP figures, which showed a small increase on the previous quarter.
"I'm afraid this is an economy that is bumping along the bottom," he said.
The UK economy has avoided falling back into a recession after recording faster-than-expected growth in the first three months of the year.
The Office for National Statistics said its first estimate for gross domestic product (GDP) showed the economy grew 0.3% during the first quarter of 2013.
