UK inflation rate falls to 2.4% in April

The UK's inflation rate fell to 2.4% in April, according to the Office for National Statistics, down from 2.8% in March.

Lower petrol prices and air fares helped the consumer prices index (CPI) to fall for the first time since September 2012.

But food prices continued to rise as cold weather hit crop production.

Phil Gooding from the ONS spoke to the BBC's Ben Thompson to explain more about the figures.
