China's growth rate slows to 10.3% as lending tightens

China's economy grew by 10.3% in the three months to June, down from 11.9% in the first quarter, but still well above the government's 8% target.

The slowdown comes as the impact fades of an unprecedented expansion in bank lending ordered by Beijing last year.

The government has also clamped down on property speculation and local government borrowing.
