The Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) has again left interest rates at 0.5%.

The MPC also said it would make no change to the £375bn of monetary stimulus it is providing through its quantitative easing programme (QE).

David Tinsley from BNP Paribas said the MPC had achieved good, "boring" central banking - but that next week would be more interesting with Mark Carney's first views of the UK economy.

"The Bank's job now is to not pull away too quickly from supporting the recovery", he told BBC Business Correspondent Ben Thompson.
